Badger on the Prowl by Karen White

You may remember that earlier this year we added new pages to TheyWorkForYou, showing MPs’ voting records in detail.

We’ve continued work on assessing votes, and you can now check your MP’s stance on seven new issues:

In Constitutional Reform:

  • Transferring more powers to the Welsh Assembly
  • Transferring more powers to the Scottish Parliament

In Foreign Policy and Defence:

  • Strengthening the Military Covenant

In Social Issues:

  • Laws to promote equality and human rights

In Taxation and Employment:

  • An annual tax on the value of expensive homes (popularly known as a mansion tax)

And in Miscellaneous:

  • Culling badgers to tackle bovine tuberculosis
  • Requiring pub companies to offer pub landlords rent-only leases
  • Restricting the scope of legal aid
  • Greater regulation of gambling

Check your own MP’s voting record here – just input your postcode on the homepage, then click on the ‘voting record’ tab on your MP’s page (or click ‘see full list’).

And don’t forget, if you want to discuss what you find with your MP you can use afterwards.
