Mr John Murray

Former MP for Leeds West

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 have sat here very silently, and have listened without interrupting a single speaker on that bench, and I ask hon. Members to extend the same courtesy to me. This House is getting into such a condition that one cannot ask a rhetorical question without an answer being roared at him from those benches. Can any hon. Member say how the substitution of the State for the private undertaker is...
  • Orders of the Day — Supply.: Class Ii. 26 Jul 1923

    I was not so very sure myself that I was in order, but speakers on the benches above the Gangway have been allowed to sing the praises of the substitution of the State for private enterprise as a means of helping the country in its troubles, and I thought it open to me to contradict them. Anyway, I have contradicted them; I have given them a flat contradiction, and that is the only answer...
