Sir Richard Meller

Former MP for Mitcham

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.

  • Orders of the Day — Old Age and Widows' Pensions Bill. 21 Feb 1940

    The hon. Member for Houghton-le-Spring (Mr. W. Joseph Stewart) said that the Bill is good in parts. In recent times it has been very seldom that, in considering a Measure of this sort, there has been disclosed such general agreement, not only on parts, but on exactly one half of the Bill. This Bill is so good that I do not think we can accept it without giving some expression of appreciation...
  • Orders of the Day — House of Commons Members Fund Bill. 19 Jul 1939

    This proposal largely extends the scope and intention of the scheme. There may be one, two, three, four or five children from the age of one to 16, and that means extending the period to an enormous extent.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health.: War Damage (Compensation). 10 Nov 1938

    asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is now in a position to give particulars of the Government's plan for providing compensation for damage to private property or land in this country arising out of an outbreak of hostilities?
