Register of All-Party Parliamentary Groups

All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal cross-party groups that have no official status within Parliament. An APPG is an informal group of Members who join together to pursue a particular topic or interest. It is essentially run by and for Members of the Commons and Lords, although many groups involve individuals and organisations from outside Parliament in their administration and activities.

There are no MPs while Parliament is dissolved. All-Party Parliamentary Groups are therefore inactive until after the 2017 general election.

The first Register of APPGs for the new Parliament will be published in early October 2017.

For further information and advice about APPGs, including the Guide to the Rules on APPGs, please visit the APPG page.
