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.

  • European Community Secondary Legislation 24 Jan 1974

    My right hon. Friend says that the logic is probably unexceptional. I am glad that the Government have accepted that there should be a sifting committee and that there should be more parliamentary time allocated to Community matters. That is why the right hon. Member for Stepney had generally a favourable reaction to the speech of the Lord President of the Council. I am guessing but I do not...
