Mr Charles Morris

Former MP for Manchester Openshaw

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.

    I am grateful to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for your guidance in that regard. I seek not to debate the issue as such but to refer briefly to the general principle. Hon. Members on both sides of the House might speculate why that unselected amendment was tabled, but it may well have arisen from the recent dramatic boardroom changes at TV-AM—
  • House of Commons Disqualification Act 1975 12 Apr 1983

    I accept your strictures, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and I shall leave the issue of that company. However, I hope that my brief comments will be taken into account by the officials who undertake the further review. My hon. Friend the Member for Newham, South (Mr. Spearing) referred to amendment (e), which refers to the appointment of the Chairman or Vice Chairman or Member of the London Docklands...
