APPG officer roles

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.

Officer Roles are drawn from the latest edition of the Register of APPGs. To see the latest edition of the register, go to Published Register of APPGs.

Parliament's platform for discussion on all issues of importance to the bilateral UK-China relationship
Vice-Chair - Agriculture & Culture

To highlight the importance of preserving our ability to see a dark sky at night; promote the adoption of dark sky friendly lighting and planning policies; protect existing UK Dark Sky reserves and support potential new reserves; and collaborate with overseas groups such as the International Dark Sky Association.
Vice Chair

Vice Chair
The APPG will allow Members to learn more about the world of British Farming. Through engagements and visits to an array of sites across the industry, the APPG will encourage parliamentarians to develop greater understanding and appreciation for the vital role that farming plays to our nation’s health and economy.
Forestry and Tree Planting
A successful forestry and wood-processing sector is positive for the economy, environment, biodiversity, recreation and health. But its future is under threat unless urgent action is taken. The sector needs a secure supply of timber and woodlands must be managed responsibly. The APPG will help tackle both of these issues.
