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.

None of us who know her is in the least surprised that she should see her cancer challenge as an opportunity to help other people. I thank her for shining her very...
Every year, The Royal Mint issues a series of coins to mark anniversaries that reflect British history, traditions and identity. In 2015, it commemorates the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo with a UK £5 coin. The design is an interpretation of the famous painting by Daniel Maclise, which depicts the meeting of the Duke of Wellington and Blucher after the Battle of Waterloo, and...
