Mr Donald Chapman

Former MP for Birmingham, Northfield

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.

    What does the right hon. Gentleman mean by "received wisdom"? Received from whom?
  • Orders of the Day — Motor Industry 11 Feb 1970

    I hope that my right hon. Friend will not be inflexible. Indeed, I hope that he will give a pledge of flexibility on the idea of a concordat. After all, the philosophy in industry which my right hon. Friend is trying to develop is one of partnership between his Ministry and the industry. Can we not take that partnership into the phase of understanding with an industry like this?
