Covid-19: Hospitality Industry (24 Mar 2021)

Robert Syms: ...than I might have thought before the start of this crisis. When they have had to act, they have done so quite swiftly. Where I have a slight difference with the British Government, which is why my voting record on one or two occasions has not been wholly in line with lockdown, is that I am still not convinced that hospitality and non-essential retail are as big a problem as the Scientific...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (5th Day) (9 Nov 2020)

Lord Stirrup: ...I am not a remoaner. I have said that I accepted the result of the EU referendum. Indeed, as I said, having accepted it, I argued for our withdrawal from the single market and the customs union. If my voting record were to be checked, it would be found that I support the Government in the Division Lobby far more often than I oppose them. I do not believe I am what the Government might...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 11 - Modifications in connection with the Northern Ireland Protocol (21 Sep 2020)

Rehman Chishti: ...majority of the Bill is necessary for an effective United Kingdom single market when we are no longer subject to EU rules. I campaigned for Brexit, my constituency voted 65% to deliver Brexit, and my voting record is the same as that of the Prime Minister and many of those who sit in Cabinet with regard to delivering Brexit. Brexit meant many things to many people, but for me it was about...

Business of the House: Principles of Democracy and the Rights of the Electorate (26 Sep 2019)

Madeleine Moon: ...commitments in terms of debates, I ask above-average numbers of questions and I have an above-average response to my electorate when I have letters, although I admit that it also indicates that my voting record is lower than some. Therefore, as the president of the NATO Parliament—I have to say I had total endorsement and written communication from the right hon. Member for Maidenhead...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Huw Merriman: ...ever wanted a second referendum. As far as I was concerned, when we had the first vote, that was it. I said to my constituents that I would first support the deal, and if that did not work, no deal. My voting record shows that I have done just that, but it also shows that I have lost. Being a serial loser, I can either carry on in that negative vein or face reality and tell my...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

Robert Halfon: ...the 2016 referendum result, even though I voted remain. I voted for the triggering of article 50, to keep no deal on the table, against a second referendum and against a long delay to our exit date. My voting record in Parliament reflects the will of the British people because I feel that anything else would lead to huge mistrust in our political system. I also believe that Parliament and...

House of Lords: Sittings - Motion to Resolve (20 Dec 2018)

Lord Adonis: ...; it is there at the moment because it is the objective reality. I think it was right to bring this matter before the House. Although my noble friend Lord McAvoy is not sufficiently content with my voting record—I shall make great efforts to improve it and get it to a position that he regards as satisfactory—I do not think that I have been found wanting in my service to the House over...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Vicky Ford: a detailed statement about human rights, birth control and abortion. I have voted on abortion policy in countries as far afield as Russia, China and India, and all over the world. If people check my voting record, they will see that I always support the woman’s right to choose. I always support the woman’s right to access contraception, and I never support the death penalty. The...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Animal welfare and sentience (1 Feb 2018)

Barry Gardiner: ...hunting mammals with dogs. I also voted to secure an end to cosmetic testing on animals, to ban fur farming and to introduce the Animal Welfare Act 2006. So there were a number of occasions on which my voting record on animal welfare and animal sentience stands up very strongly. I suspect that it would it be in marked contrast to many Members on the Government side of the House.

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Andrew Percy: My position on tuition fees is perfectly clear, as my voting record in this Chamber will attest. The difference in what the hon. Lady has outlined today is that the normal run of things with Labour policy is to promise students something and backtrack when in government; this time, Labour has promised to write off students’ debts and then backtracked in opposition. Will she therefore...

Adjournment (November and Christmas): Business of the House (Private Members’ Bills) (17 Jul 2017)

Philip Davies: Just because something happened in the past, it does not mean that it was a good thing. The example that the hon. Lady has given falls into that category. If she looks at my voting record, she will notice that an awful lot of things that happened during the coalition years were not particularly to my taste. I used to vote accordingly, as the record will confirm. Praying in aid something that...

Tax Avoidance and Multinational Companies (3 Feb 2016)

John Martin McDonnell: I know that the hon. Lady was not here at the time, so perhaps she should check my voting record throughout my 18 years in this House. I do not want to keep on repeating this. I wanted both Governments to go further, but an independent assessment has shown that the legislation introduced by the previous Labour Government will drag in 10 times more in tax than the current Government’s...

Business of the House (3 Dec 2015)

Alan Brown: ...House, and they are also disappointed when I do not get to do that. They could also make the decision as to whether the Prime Minister’s comments about “terrorist sympathisers” were a slur on my voting record. Will the Leader of the House therefore reconsider the future arrangements for such important debates?

Business of the House: ISIL in Syria (2 Dec 2015)

John Baron: ...of tough decisions—but there has to be respect on both sides for the views held. One or two people have suggested that one is playing politics or personalities with this issue. I refer them to my voting record on Iraq, my opposition to the extension of the Afghan mission to Helmand, my opposition to Libya and, indeed, my position two years ago in the House when we were asked to support a...

[Mr Dai Havard in the Chair] — backbench business — Digital Democracy (10 Mar 2015)

Meg Hillier: ...format. Staff in my own office use TheyWorkForYou, which I commend as a website because its algorithms, through its screen scraping—a very old-fashioned approach—give easier access to data about my voting record than I have if I try to look it up in Hansard. We wanted to see that change and we are delighted that the House of Commons is already moving along those lines. We set stiff...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — Banking: National Minimum Wage (15 Jan 2014)

Vincent Cable: ...but I am being asked personally to explain why I did not vote. It had a lot to do with the fact that my late wife was terminally ill at the time and I was in the Royal Marsden hospital. That is why my voting record at the time was poor on that and other issues. As it happens, my party supported the national minimum wage; nobody opposed it. I became the party’s spokesman shortly after the...

Badger Cull — [Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] (11 Dec 2013)

John Randall: ..., although I know it is difficult. The hon. Gentleman declared that he is a member of the League Against Cruel Sports. We are not talking about sports, and if we were talking about blood sports, my voting record would show where I stand. I am a member of four wildlife trusts, and I have been a keen wildlife conservationist all my life. I watched badgers from an early age, and I read the...

New Clause 1 — Gibraltar (8 Nov 2013)

William Bain: ...on electoral reform to give 16 and 17-year-olds the right to vote. My support for the amendment tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Ilford South is consistent with that line of thinking and with my voting record in the House. Amendment 69 raises an important question. The Minister has already conceded that there is a need to extend the franchise to the people of Gibraltar, but there is...

Housing: Leaseholder Redress Schemes — Question (7 Nov 2013)

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: I am grateful to the noble Baroness for paying so much attention to my voting record. This provision in the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act is the right way forward because it will provide, as I said, a new course of redress for leaseholders and tenants. We believe that once the schemes are in place they will drive up standards, which are so important, and that they will be able to do so...

Business of the House: Amendments to Bills (Explanatory Statements) (6 Nov 2013)

Charles Walker: May I reassure the hon. Gentleman that in the past three and a half years I have never sought the support of the Executive in any way, as demonstrated by my voting record? If they want to support a recommendation made by the Procedure Committee, that is entirely down to those on the Front Bench, but it is not something that I have sought or would ever want to see.
