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.

I was not making a partisan point, although, having listened to the minister’s remarks, I think he thought that I was. Amendment 101 is about scrutiny and transparency, not about who is in charge at any period in history. Transparency and scrutiny are pillars of our democracy. Indeed, they have been championed by our new King, and Parliament has the opportunity tonight to agree on a...
