Former MP for Ormskirk
All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.
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.
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.
asked the Minister of Works what licences he has granted for the erection and extension of Labour clubs in Haydock, Newton and Wigan; whether he will state the reasons for the grant of these licences; and whether he is prepared to grant equally liberal facilities for the improvement to public houses and other political and non-political clubs in these areas.
The right hon. Gentleman says that licences have been issued for the remedying of structural defects, but is it not a fact that licences totalling £21,000 have been issued for the erection of a new Labour Club at Blackbrook and that another licence has been issued for £11,500 for the erection of the Labour Club at Haydock, opposite the existing club? Are these not facts?
Can the right hon. Gentleman give instances of where he has issued licences on this sort of scale for the erection of clubs of other parties and non-political clubs?
