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.

In recent weeks I have spent a lot of time not talking but listening. I have listened to TV and radio broadcasts about the situation, and they get it wrong as well. We are not talking about people being held for 90 days; we are talking about a maximum of 90 days. Make it 28 days, and then go to a judge to get more. I could not vote for 90 days; that would be silly. It is being expressed...
My Lords, does my noble friend care to consider the figures for the same period in the 1970s and compare them with the following Conservative government's? She will find that whether it was a matter of gun crime or ordinary crime the Home Secretary of the day must have been scintillatingly good.
