Hon. Patrick Maitland

Former MP for Lanark

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs have been less able to vote in Parliament, and this will be reflected 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.

  • Free Trade Association (Stockholm Discussions) 23 Jul 1959

    Reverting to the fishier aspects of this project, can my right hon. Friend elucidate his remarks about fish products being treated as industrial products, bearing in mind the Scottish interest in this matter, namely, the production of fish meal, and, secondly, the United Kingdom imports of Canadian canned salmon? Can he say how far these arrangements might lead to increased competition either...
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Houses, Douglas 14 Jul 1959

    asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many of the Scottish Special Housing Association houses at Douglas, in respect of the construction of which the Exchequer bears an annual burden of £11,500, are now unoccupied; and for how long this has been so.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Houses, Douglas 14 Jul 1959

    Does not this represent a rather considerable debt burden, which is unproductive and unused? Is my right hon. Friend still doing everything he can to have the availability of these houses brought to the attention of industrialists and others in the hope of persuading industry to come to Douglas?
