Sometimes the media do not report some of the important debates that are going on in the House of Commons that affect our society and it is often difficult to find out how our representatives are voting for or against some of the issues that are important to us.  For instance, Labour tabled a motion against the Coalition’s White Paper on Adult Social Care on 16th July 2012 which has largely gone unreported.  It was defeated by 67 votes.

To ensure that our elected representatives are really working on our behalf we should be able to easily find out how they are voting on issues that really matter to us and sometimes that is not easy.  I have come across a website that lets you do this and wanted to share it with you.  This website (http://www.theyworkforyou.com/) lets you find out what your MP, MSP or MLA is doing in your name, read debates, written answers, see what’s coming up in Parliament, and sign up for email alerts when there’s past or future activity on someone or something you’re interested in.

Happy reading and check up on the candidates before you decide who to vote for at the next election.

I am passionate about the NHS and feel it should be protected as a national treasure and should not be tampered with for party political reasons.
