Captain Richard Evans

Former MP for Carmarthen

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.

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 also thought that the Amendments would have been first disposed of and the larger issues then discussed, but so much latitude was given to the hon. Member for Don Valley (Mr. T. Williams) that I thought it had been tacitly agreed that we should embark on the larger discussion.
  • Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Acts. 26 Jul 1935

    There are still a few points which need stressing. The House of Commons, having accepted the principle of limitation of output must, I concede, provide some means of implementing that decision, and I cannot see any other way than by instituting some sort of system of factory licences, but I would call attention to the silent revolution through which we have passed. I am in something of a...
