Lord Hutton

Former Crossbench Peer

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.

We want to reach a bipartisan approach because these are problems that all Governments have shared and wrestled with. I do not believe, however, that all the problems can be laid at the door of DE&S. A great deal of the sad and...
  • Public Service Pensions Bill — Second Reading 19 Dec 2012

    One of the great things about no longer being in government is that I can point to the government Front Bench-to people who can answer that question. I do not want to put words into the Minister's mouth or the Government's mouth, but they have set out their stall as to how they can manage and contain these costs. There is going to be an increase in costs-there is no doubt about that-but...
  • Inquiries Bill [HL] 7 Feb 2005

    My Lords, I know that before the noble and learned Lord the Lord Chancellor asked me to conduct the inquiry into the death of Dr Kelly, his permanent secretary told the senior Law Lord, the noble and learned Lord, Lord Bingham, that he was proposing to do so, and the noble and learned Lord raised no objection. In addition—and on this point I am perhaps slightly differing from the noble and...
