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.

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the Department of Transport and DEFRA are taking any joint steps to support UK farming communities to harness methane emissions to be used as renewable biomethane fuel for buses, trains and trams along with digestates capable of enriching soils and sequestering carbon; and if so, what are any such steps.
