Mr Evelyn King

Former MP for South Dorset

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.

  • Contingencies Fund, 1977–78: Prisoners and Human Rights 29 Mar 1979

    asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what information he has and what investigations he has made as to the state of prisons and any infringement of human rights existing therein in countries with which the United Kingdom have extradition treaties.
  • Contingencies Fund, 1977–78: Prisoners and Human Rights 29 Mar 1979

    Does the Under-Secretary of State accept that where prison conditions in other countries are less satisfactory than they should be, there is good ground for revising extradition treaties? Will the hon. Lady have regard to recent cases in that respect?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Local Authority Manual Workers 7 Mar 1979

    As the Secretary of State advocates a hierarchical system for wages and salaries, does one not arrive at the irrefutable conclusion that some people must be the lower paid? Who does he think they should be?
