Viscount Colville of Culross

Former Crossbench Peer

There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs were less able to vote in Parliament in certain periods, and this will be reflected by absences 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.

    I had no intention of doing that; I wish to take out the law enforcement agencies and leave in the Security Service and the intelligence services.
  • Bribery Bill [HL]: Report 2 Feb 2010

    My Lords, as my Amendment 22 is grouped with this, perhaps I may be allowed to speak at this stage. Rather like my noble and learned friend Lord Woolf, I thought that by this time there would not be much more to say but, like him, I find that there is a little to say. I do not understand the position of the noble Lord, Lord Goodhart. The security services and the intelligence services still...
