Mr Gerald Harrison

Former MP for Bodmin

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 think I call show the House exactly where my argument comes in. The object of a holiday is to enable the young to appreciate to the full the significance of Empire Day, because the whole purpose of the holiday is to celebrate a real joy, and not a pretended joy. I think it will be agreed that the celebration of Empire Day is a real joy, if they appreciate the whole significance of the...
  • Orders of the Day — Public Holiday (Empire Day) Bill. 27 Apr 1928

    I am afraid that I did not make myself clear for which I must apologise. The only exception I took was to propaganda from Communist sources, which has been spreading the view up and down the country that we are the robbers and oppressors of other peoples in the world. My object has been to let the young people have a full appreciation of exactly what has been done in the Empire and of their...
