Mr James Davidson

Former MP for Aberdeenshire West

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.

The timing was extremely bad, and many small firms, as a result, have been forced to default on their contracts or accept severe losses. This has had a very bad effect on the agricultural industry and on small firms in rural areas. If I may ask a supplementary question on my second...

    At what time are these machines available in the morning? I and, I believe, many other hon. Members would be more concerned to see the machine operating before 10 o'clock in the morning, particularly as there is often only half an hour between the opening-up of the machines and the starting of Committees.
