The APPG for the Wood Panel Industry

The aim of the APPG for the Wood Panel Industry is to highlight the vital contribution that wood panel manufacturers make to the regional and national economies of the UK, and to ensure the sustainable growth of this domestic industry by addressing concerns relating to energy policy and wood security.

All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal cross-party groups that have no official status within Parliament. They are run by and for Members of the Commons and Lords, though many choose to involve individuals and organisations from outside Parliament in their administration and activities.

The APPG for the Wood Panel Industry is Chaired by Selaine Saxby MP (Conservative Member of Parliament for North Devon) and has cross-party support from Labour, SNP, Liberal Democrat, DUP and Plaid Cymru.

Expert Working Group for the Wood Panel Industry

An Expert Working Group for the Wood Panel Industry first met in August 2018 and presented the first edition of their policy report to the then Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth, the Rt Hon Claire Perry at the House of Commons in November 2018.

Since then, the Expert Working Group for Wood Panel Industry report has been reviewed in light of key policy developments.
