Mr Godfrey Wilson

Former MP for Cambridge University

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.

Show more detail
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 should like, in the first place, to join with those who have congratulated the Parliamentary Secretary on the admirable way in which he has presented these Estimates, but, unlike the speakers who have preceded me, I shall not go on to disagree with everything he has said. The two previous speakers have referred to elementary education, and I want to say something concerning higher...
  • Orders of the Day — Supply.: Class Iv. Board of Education. 30 May 1934

    That goes a little outside, but I can answer the point in this way, the endowments of the public schools benefit and give help to boys and girls who need it. There is a needs test in every scholarship. I am not speaking for the great public schools which are heavily endowed, but for the small schools which have only very small endowments. Unfair discrimination exists between those schools and...
