Mr Gwilym Lloyd George

Former MP for Newcastle upon Tyne North

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.

    The Swiss authorities, acting as protecting Power, have issued 51 visas to foreigners in Egypt to come to the United Kingdom. No precise figures are available of the number of British subjects who have arrived from Egypt, but such records as it has been possible to make show that nearly 2,000 British refugees from Egypt are now in the United Kingdom.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugees from Egypt (Visas) 20 Dec 1956

    Very sympathetic consideration is given in the case of those who have relatives here, and of others who have not. About 40 have been allowed to come in without visas.
