Former MP for Darwen
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.
We will update this information if the situation changes. See more detail on votes during the COVID-19 period here.

Is the Prime Minister satisfied that the Dominions are fully consulted before important decisions are taken, apart from their being informed of those decisions which are arrived at in this country?
asked the Prime Minister what representations he has received within the last six months from Dominion Prime Ministers personally, or from Dominion Governments, with regard to the desirability of consultation between His Majesty's Government and Dominion Governments before important decisions are arrived at by the former affecting the Empire and Commonwealth as a whole.
