Mr Reginald Banks

Former MP for Swindon

There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

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.

  • Orders of the Day — Armaments. 30 Jul 1934

    I admit that I possess no technical qualification for dealing with and criticising this Motion, and I doubt whether any great technical qualifications are required. It seems to me that a rudimentary knowledge of recent history and the elements of logic, with a pinch of common sense, are sufficient to oppose a Motion which would have been foolish any time these last five years, but in July,...
  • Privilege. 13 Jun 1934

    I find myself in the same difficulty as my right hon. Friend the Member for Hillhead (Sir R. Home) and I doubt whether my difficulty is eased by the statement that the observations in paragraph 21 do not alter the law. If they do not alter the law they certainly are declaratory of very important principles of law. Like my right hon. Friend, I am ready to accept the verdict of the Committee...
  • Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 6. — (Customs Duty on patent leather.) 4 Jun 1934

    Does it not follow that anybody who does not agree with that theory of economics is to be accused of defending trade interests?
