No they don't they are probably in the pub.
They have what is called a division.
In my view this need to be changed. There should be free annon votes just
like we have in the elections. Seems to me that a lot of those who don't
want to be pinned down are mysteriously missing when a contentious vote
takes place.

They don't have to be on the benches to vote. They somehow just crawl out
of the woodwork.

They have eight minutes to get to a lobby IIRC.

No because they represent us and I want to know how my MP is voting on my behalf. The exception would be internal elections in parliament e.g. speaker and select committee chairs.
