Mr Ioan Evans

Former MP for Cynon Valley

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.

Will he take that into account and perhaps reduce VAT to the rate that was in force before this...
  • Rate Support Grant (Wales) 8 Feb 1984

    This wide-ranging debate has taken longer than we expected. Seventeen hon. Members from Wales have taken part. It is interesting to contrast this debate with that on the English rate support grant order, when there was a major rebellion against the Government's proposals by Members representing English constituencies. The Welsh grant is as bad as the English grant. Conservative Members have...
  • Severn Bridge 7 Feb 1984

    Does the Secretary of State realise that, in view of the overwhelming demand on both sides of the Severn for a second crossing, his statement will sound like the curate's egg — good in parts. We welcome the announcement about repairs, but does he realise that the Welsh people expected that there would be a categorical statement to the effect that there would be a second crossing? It should...
