Voting by proxy


Proxy voting is a formal arrangement recognised by the House of Commons which allows Members who are absent due to baby leave to have another Member vote on their behalf.

Following the Committee’s earlier work on proxy voting, and proxy voting for parental leave being placed on a permanent basis, this inquiry will explore whether the scheme should be broadened further.
