Mrs Margo MacDonald

Former MP for Glasgow Govan

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.

    The crass insensitivity of the Bill will probably shorten the time scale of events leading to the Scots taking control of the oil and gas industries. The final pretence has been dropped that the Scottish people have any means of expression at the decisionmaking level through the office of the Secretary of State. Does the right hon. Gentleman accept that with the Bill he will make himself...
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Truancy Officers 23 Jan 1974

    Does the Minister agree that the truancy problem in Scotland could be partially solved if he agreed to allow 16-year-olds, who are now forced to remain in school until the first available leaving date, to leave on their 16th birthday, as many of them are non-certificated pupils with no interest in remaining in school and are not catered for owing to the shortfall in teachers in Scotland?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Eec Ministerial Meetings 16 Jan 1974

    Why is the Minister so enthusiastic about haggling after development aid for the regions of the United Kingdom, including the country of Scotland, when it was admitted in a Government publication today that the system of regional aid which has been operated by successive Governments from this House has been a failure? The publication says that it has been pursued with more enthusiasm than success.
