The APPG’s aim is to raise within Parliament issues of concern to the wood panel industry, and provide Parliamentarians with accurate information about matters relating to the industry.
An All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) is a group of parliamentarians formed to discuss a subject in which members have a common interest and enthusiasm. The Groups are not controlled by a party whip and only backbench members of both Houses (i.e. those who do not hold a ministerial position) are eligible to join.
The APPG was reconstituted in May 2016. Its members are:
– Steven Paterson MP (Chair)
– Susan Elan Jones MP (Vice-Chair)
– John Stevenson MP (Vice-Chair)
– Alan Brown MP (Vice-Chair)
