Mr George Cunningham

Former MP for Islington South and Finsbury

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.

  • Local Authorities (Expenditure Powers) Bill 11 May 1983

    Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. None the less, I think that it might speed the proceedings, shall we say, on other matters. [Interruption.] Right.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Greater London Council 27 Apr 1983

    Is the Secretary of State aware that some Labour-controlled authorities in London are still keen to use public funds to finance a Labour local authority association? Is he aware that, having been advised that it is not legal to do that explicitly, they are now building conditions into the constitution of the new association about, for example, the abolition or not of the GLC so as to ensure...
