Former Other Peer
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.
My Lords, my noble friend Lord Steel of Aikwood whispered to me a moment or two ago that I should consider myself fortunate that after my name on the Order Paper there did not appear in brackets the word "deceased". I thank the noble Lord for his comments. My principal regret is that I leave the committee just as I was beginning to get the hang of what was going on.
asked the Chairman of Committees: Whether he will look into the possibility of Peers' parliamentary mail being forwarded during the recess in an envelope which is easy to open.
asked Her Majesty's Government: For each of the past 10 years for which figures are available, in how many separate trials were convictions obtained for offences involving jury-tampering.
