Mr James Hope

Former MP for Sheffield Central

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.

    I am not certain whether the President of the Board of Trade could give the House information on that point, as to whether the inquiry is technically a judicial inquiry, but even if it is not, it would be entirely against the spirit of this House to discuss matters which are being inquired into while the inquiry is still on.
  • Orders of the Day — Royal Mercantile Marine. 9 May 1929

    That is obviously out of order.
  • Orders of the Day — Royal Mercantile Marine. 9 May 1929

    It would require legislation to prevent them from doing so and to force them to keep works open. This is an occasion when anything can be discussed which could have been discussed on the Estimates, and the hon. Member can refer to anything that he regards as waste in the course of administration, but he cannot discuss questions of future policy which would require legislation.
