Former MP for Hendon
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.

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the average number of motor-cars stolen daily in the Metropolitan Police area during the month of January; the number of thieves apprehended for such thefts; and the number of motor-cars subsequently returned to their owners.
In view of the somewhat alarming figure, could the right hon. Gentleman not ask the police to devote their energies to setting traps, well-baited, rather than speed traps, under the circumstances prevailing at present?
