Lord Wigley

Plaid Cymru Peer

@dafydd_wigley

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.

  • Civil Servants: Public Procurement - Question 29 Oct 2020

    My Lords, the Minister accepts that the public procurement system has to be whiter than white, I am sure, but does he accept that the registration of interests is as much to protect public servants as it is to protect the wider public interest in the objective and open placement of any public contracts?
  • Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Procurement: Conflict of Interests 29 Oct 2020

    To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they have taken to ensure that any decision to place a contract to procure (1) services, and (2) equipment, during the COVID-19 pandemic is not influenced by any individual involved in the procurement process having a personal connection to the company providing such services or equipment.
  • Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Prime Minister: Wales 29 Oct 2020
