Mr George Wallace

Former MP for Norwich North

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.

There is, therefore, some...
  • Health and Welfare (Expenditure) 28 Jan 1974

    The hon. Lady does not know what she is saying. There are many of us who, through bitter experiences over the years—I am not a young man—have fought and made sacrifices in order to bring about the degree of social security which we have today.
  • Health and Welfare (Expenditure) 28 Jan 1974

    Has the hon. Lady no thought for the women or children? Has she no thought for the fact that these men, their wives and others at work have paid contributions and have some rights? Does she not realise—do the Government not realise—that some of my constituents are suffering social injustice at the present time, when those who work on certain days a week receive only two days' unemployment...
