Colin Campbell

Former Scottish National Party MSP for West of Scotland

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.

    I suppose I must declare an interest. When I was coming up the road, David Davidson told me that he supposed that I would be speaking today. I asked, "Why is that?" and he replied, "On grounds of antiquity." No one has tried to define older people. It is funny—the young people in the gallery probably think that older people are 30. When someone is 30, they think that old is 45, and when...
  • Scottish Parliament: Closing the Opportunity Gap for Older People 27 Mar 2003

    I could not possibly disagree with Helen Eadie in this instance. That is just great and really good to know. The second benefit of people taking non-vocational courses after they leave work is that they can share their life's experience with the other people on the course, and with the staff. Not only does that educate other people, it is good for their own self-esteem. To give the people in...
  • Scottish Parliament: Suicide Emergency Telephone Hotline 20 Mar 2003

    I would not pretend to have much knowledge of this subject but I have just reviewed in my head the few instances of suicide that I have come across in my lifetime. I remember meeting, at the age of six, older boys—probably about 10 years older than me—who were obviously grief stricken because one of their friends, whose younger relatives I knew, had died the previous night. It was not...
