All Party Parliamentary Groups

All Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross party, interest groups that are run by and for Members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. APPGs are not given any powers or funding from Parliament as they have no official status. They cover a wide range of subjects; some foster links with other countries, some address particular issues, and some exist for social reasons.

I have been a member of the following APPGs:

  • Epilepsy (Vice Chair)
  • City Regions Group (Vice Chair)
