Former MP for Seaham
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.
We want to be very sure that the words used hear the meaning which the Minister puts upon them. The Minister suggested that no difficulties will arise from the wording of Clause 43 because ex hypothesi the London County Council will always be a willing partner, and, therefore, if he has power to coerce the other people, the object will be attained. That does not seem to be quite so clear to...
Are we to understand that there has been no inquiry into this matter; and is it possible for a man to be employed in this way without the commanding officer knowing of it.
The right hon. Gentleman has not replied to the latter part of my question. May I ask whether the commanding officer arranged this, or whether any application was made to him to arrange it?
