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.

Thank you, Mr Mayor, and thank you for your support in championing those small businesses, which are the lifeblood of London in terms of their employment to so many Londoners. I have been out about my constituency just visiting some of those businesses and the key thing that comes back is that lack of guidance coming from central Government. They do welcome the approach now on face masks...
Thank you, Mr Mayor. Finally, at the first meeting of the London Recovery Board on 4 June, attendees noted that the fact that London’s businesses are diverse and they serve a range of different residents.
