Guide to the Rules on All-Party Parliamentary Groups

18 July 2023

In preparation for the debate in the House on 19 July on All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs), the Committee on Standards has published a revised Guide to the rules for APPGs. This Guide will come into force if the House agrees to the motion tabled by the Government for debate on 19 July.

The motion implements proposals in an earlier report from the Committee, as well as authorising the Committee to agree transitional arrangements. These transitional arrangements are set out in the same document as the revised Guide.

The updated Guide brings together all existing guidance on APPGs into one location.

The new Rules will take effect during a period of transitional arrangements commencing from 16 October 2023, subject to the motion on APPGs being agreed by the House on 19 July.
