Mr Walter Johnson

Former MP for Derby South

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.

  • Bill Presented: British Railways (Serpell Report) 3 Feb 1983

    In those circumstances, Sir, perhaps I should sit down. As was said earlier, there have been many reports on British Rail. My right hon. Friend the Member for Barrow-in-Furness (Mr. Booth) recalled some of them. As many hon. Members know, I have been concerned with the railways for a long time. I have never known any report to be so universally condemned. It has been a waste of time and...
