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.

Rhoda Grant is right that we need a new culture, and I would like to live in a culture where such a debate was not necessary on an annual basis. The Scottish Greens will support the Government motion and the Conservative and Labour amendments. I thank all the organisations that have provided briefings for today. The “Femicide Census”, which was published yesterday, examines the killings...
I am delighted that all front-line NHS staff working in health and social care are finally going to be giving given weekly testing, which is something that my Green colleagues and I have been calling for since April, and it is the least that our doctors and carers deserve. However, it has taken seven months to get to this point, and I am slightly concerned about that. Last week, Parliament...
