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.

That is of particular concern for churches in Airdrie and Shotts that have been in...

  • Scottish Parliament: Scottish Government Priorities 26 May 2021

    I thank the First Minister for her statement. I appreciate not only the focus on recovery from the pandemic but the clear and bold ambition for the future that is based on finding consensus. Yesterday, the Social Justice and Fairness Commission that the First Minister established published its report, which included a call for the extension of the Scottish child payment. I welcome the work in...
