Former MP for Gower
All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.
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.
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.

Is he aware of the general feeling that much damage would have been...
Is the Minister aware that the British Steel plan—which he states the Government are still considering—involves more than 1,000 men being made redundant in the most efficient tinplate plant in South Wales, namely, Velindre? Is he further aware that the works committee has submitted a work-sharing scheme that will reduce the number of redundancies by at least 50 per cent.? Will the...
