Mr Robert Bourne

Former MP for Oxford

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.

    No, Sir. I think these are ordinary Sessional Orders. These are not printed as a normal rule, but the information is required for the officers of the House, and also for the Select Committees on Procedure when they are set up. It is merely to authorise the Clerk of the House to keep up the information.
  • Private Business. 26 Jul 1938

    The effect of some of the Amendments is to increase the obligations of the promoters as to rendering accounts; the remainder are of a protective or drafting nature.
  • Private Business. 26 Jul 1938

    The Amendments consist of a protective Clause and two drafting Amendments.
