Sir Gerald Hurst

Former MP for Manchester Moss Side

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.

I hope to exercise that practice this afternoon, and...

    The correspondence in this case, which I shall therefore read to the House, shows not the slighest difference between the Board of Education and the school as to the material facts. It may be that differences may become patent as the debate develops, but no suggestion by the Board has yet been made that any material difference exists between their version and the version I am putting before...

    The right hon. Gentleman can take it from me that this statement is dated 26th July and it is the only statement I have ever had. It is the statement I showed to my right hon. Friend the other day. It is the only statement, and it has not been touched since. It is the statement the lady wrote on the day she signed it, and it has not been altered in any way since then. What I say about the...
