Sir Ronald Cross

Former MP for Ormskirk

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.

    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.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Works: Building Licences (Clubs) 23 Oct 1950

    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?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Works: Building Licences (Clubs) 23 Oct 1950

    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?
