Mr Alfred Barnes

Former MP for East Ham South

There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs were less able to vote in Parliament in certain periods, and this will be reflected by absences 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 — Transport Bill: Clause 10. — (the Transport Levy.) 11 Dec 1952

    I beg to move, in page 12, line 12, to leave out from "column," to "of." in line 13. This Amendment brings us to the point of considering the levy, that ill-thought out piece of legislation. Those who are qualified to speak for trade and industry in this country are bewildered by its imposition. I have followed the comments in trade papers and in the general Press and speeches by those who...
  • Orders of the Day — Transport Bill: Clause 10. — (the Transport Levy.) 11 Dec 1952

    I appreciate that point. I took the hypothetical figure of a £20 million loss, which is money which the Government itself have used. That is reflected in £20 million of Transport Stock issued. That should be cancelled by Government decision. It could be wiped out completely or could represent an annual interest charge which the Treasury would accept for the Transport Commission, who would...
  • Orders of the Day — Clause 16. — (Repeals and Amendments Relating to the Commission's Functions with Respect to Road Passenger Transport.) 10 Dec 1952

    I beg to move, in page 22, line 11, to leave out subsection (1). This subsection repeals Sections 63 and 64 of the 1947 Act, which provide for the machinery to establish area road passenger schemes. I do not think that the repeal of these two Clauses should pass without some comment, although I recognise that in view of the operation of the Guillotine one must attempt to ration the available...
