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.

Is he not asking for...
  • Business of the House 23 Jul 1959

    May I suggest that the Leader of the House take this matter a little more seriously? Is he aware that the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation has not apologised to the Select Committee? He has said that if the Committee is offended he is sorry. That is another matter. But is there not a perfectly well established procedure, when a Select Committee reports to the House, for the Government...
