Mr Herbert Dixon

Former MP for Belfast East

There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs were less able to vote in Parliament in certain periods, and this will be reflected by absences 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.

    On behalf of the cattle-raisers whom I represent in this House, I can definitely say that we welcome this Bill, and our reason for welcoming it is that at any rate it shows that there is going to be some continuity of policy in the matter of beef. That will be of tremendous value to the stock-raiser. The man raising stock has to look forward to at least two years before he can sell a beast,...
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland (Imperial Contribution). 30 Jul 1935

    Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that North Ireland has contributed over £20,000,000 to the Imperial Exchequer during the 15 years that it has been in existence, which is more than the whole of Ireland contributed from the time of the Union down to 1920?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland (Preservation of Order). 24 Jul 1935

    Is my right hon. Friend aware that the statement made by the hon. Member is entirely incorrect and that no ban was put upon Orange processions; and might I ask further if it is not a fact that Northern Ireland is part and parcel of the British Empire and that, therefore, the civil authority has exactly the same powers of calling upon the troops as the civil authority in London, Glasgow,...
