What you can do

Support TheyWorkForYou's work in the new Parliament

TheyWorkForYou is run by mySociety, a small UK charity.

We're a very efficient operation and do a lot with a small team. At the moment TheyWorkForYou, which is used by millions of people each year, is run with less than the equivalent of one full-time person.

If we had a bit more money, we could achieve a lot more.

We want MPs to meet the standards and expectations of the people who elected them - you!

If you share that goal please donate today to enable greater transparency and accountability of the next government.

Learn more about our current work, and our new project WhoFundsThem - looking into MPs’ and APPGs’ financial interests.

Those traditions have been based on a quality of seamanship that has been the envy of the world, and many of those qualities have been the result of the training given to our...
  • Merchant Shipping and Maritime Security Bill [Lords]: Appointment by Secretary of State of Advisors on Marine Salvage, & C. 17 Mar 1997

    I am grateful to the four hon. Members who have spoken. The hon. Member for Pembroke (Mr. Ainger) introduced the debate on new clause 4, and the hon. Member for Truro (Mr. Taylor) spoke to new clause 5. At the outset, I must say that both new clauses are unnecessary. New clause 4 seeks to give the Secretary of State powers that he already has, although it does not use, as the hon. Member for...
