Former MP for Nuneaton
All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.
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.
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.

Friend the First Secretary said, in some long and protracted discussions in Committee we came to understand each other's points of view and the different standpoints from which we should examine the principle of the new Clause. We are also unable, in many instances, to get the answers we sought. Answers were given, but not the ones we wanted. In our debate today, I am sure...
