Don’t forget to let us know if your MP gets back to you. To do this you can contact our Public Affairs Assistant, Emily.
All Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party, interest groups of MPs and Peers interested in a particular issue.
APPGs do not have any power to make laws and are not funded by Parliament. There is a great number of APPGs, covering many and diverse fields such as health, education, transport, defence, finance, the media, and sports.
If you have any other questions or comments about this work please contact our Public Affairs Assistant, Emily.
