Mr George Knight

Former MP for Nottingham South

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs have been less able to vote in Parliament, and this will be reflected in their voting record.

11th May to 2nd June 2020

All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.

2nd to 9th June 2020

The option of online voting was removed, and a number of MPs may have been unable to vote because they were not physically able to attend.

10th June 2020 onwards

The requirements on proxy voting were relaxed, allowing MPs to designate another MP to cast a vote on their behalf.

If an MP votes by proxy, it is effectively exactly the same as if they cast the vote in person and it shows up on their TheyWorkForYou voting record.

MPs are not required to designate a proxy, and may instead pair with an opposing MP to miss a vote. Parliament does not record when two MPs have come to a pairing arrangement, so on TheyWorkForYou, they will both appear to have been absent for the vote.

We will update this information if the situation changes. See more detail on votes during the COVID-19 period here.

[HON. MEMBERS: "No."] I will put it this way. These words incorporate into this Bill the principle of development which is set out in the Preamble to the Act of 1919. I...

    I am not asking you, Sir Dennis, to give a Ruling on any statement of mine, but I am here to state an opinion, and if that statement of opinion is not within the Rules of Order I am prepared to submit to your Ruling. With great respect, I desire to repeat, in the hope that it is in order, that these words bring within the ambit of this Bill the principle of development which is set out in the...
