Mr James Stuart

Former MP for Moray and Nairnshire

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.

Recent appearances

  • Scotland: Industry, Employment and Roads 2 Jul 1959

    I listened to the whole speech. If, like a right hon. Member the hon. Gentleman opposite at Question Time to-day, the hon. Gentleman has no sense of humour, it is a pity.
  • Condition of Private Industry 29 Jun 1959

    That is an argument in favour of the present situation. What is the hon. Gentleman grousing about?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Housing Accommodation, Caithness 17 Mar 1959

    Is not this a matter which has been the concern, and rightly so, of the local authorities for a considerable number of years, and would not any departure from that policy be one of queue-jumping, which would lead to endless difficulties in very many quarters?
