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.

Learn more about how we'll use your donation and other ways to help.

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Housing 31 Jul 1951

    Can my right hon. Friend indicate what proportion of this year's programme for Scottish building consists of three-apartment houses?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Development Schemes, Shetland 31 Jul 1951

    Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that there is a very valuable fishing fleet in this area which, with a new type of boat, has not adequate safe harbour facilities, and that a causeway of 500 feet from Trondra to the other side would provide such a safe harbour? Will he give urgent attention to this matter in view of the possibility of unemployment in the area?
  • Orders of the Day — Transport 31 Jul 1951

    That is very important. Will the hon. Gentleman give the date to which he is referring—the date after the railways were nationalised? Is he not confusing this with the period before nationalisation?
