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

A vote was taken in this House on that occasion and a large majority supported the Government. Hon. Members knew perfectly well that as a result a White Paper would be forthcoming. Quite recently we again supported the Government in setting up this Joint Select Committee, and I do not think that we are doing a great service in trying to insinuate that the committee is not impartial. The hon....
