Commander Sir John Maitland

Former MP for Horncastle

There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

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.

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: Boston Hospital 7 Mar 1966

    asked the Minister of Health on what date the final plans and costings for Boston Hospital will be ready, so that a decision may be given to begin building.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: Boston Hospital 7 Mar 1966

    Is the Minister aware that we are not getting very far, because last year the hon. Gentleman said in answer to a Question of mine that he was getting out these figures as soon as he could, and that the moment would arrive when the hospital building could begin? We do not seem to have got any further. Cannot he hasten matters a little?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Holds (Investment Incentives) 10 Feb 1966

    Does not the right hon. Gentleman realise that seaside resorts are, almost by definition, because of their seasonal occupation facilities, in a very bad way during the winter? Does he not realise that this will affect the general prosperity of resorts and increase unemployment in areas which really need a great deal of help?
