Captain William Sanders

Former MP for Battersea North

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.

    As one who was in the Army from 1914 to 1918, I could speak, had I the ability, as much against war as did the hon. Member for Bridgeton (Mr. Maxton), who spoke a few minutes ago, and who, I believe, considered, as he had a perfect right to consider, that it was not his duty to take part in that War. I can say from the bottom of my heart that I have as much horror of war, having seen what war...
  • European Situation. 3 Apr 1939

    We have the word of the hon. Member from his own experiences, but I go by the votes that Hitler receives whenever he puts forward a plebiscite, and I go by the cheers and the support which he gets whenever he makes one of his great militarist speeches. I would say that you can count by the scores only the number of Germans who would not be prepared to follow if he gave the word. I would ask...
