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.

APPGs that were on the final register of the 2015 Parliament (published on 2 May 2017) retained their status as registered groups until 15 September 2017 but lost this status if they had not registered anew by that date, as required following the general election held in June 2017.

The first register of the 2017 Parliament was published on 28 September 2017.  Thereafter a new edition will be published approximately every 6 weeks.

For further information on APPGs (including the Guide to the Rules on APPGs and the Registration Form for APPGs), please visit the APPG page.
