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.

I hope that he will take a similar course with regard to this Amendment, because I believe it is only right and proper that a...
  • Private Business.: Road and Rail Traffic Bill. 20 Jul 1933

    I beg to move, as an Amendment to the proposed Amendment, in line 11, to leave out the word "Coastwise."
