APPG Family Business
In this section:
The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Family Business (APPG FB) was established in 2011 to promote and facilitate communication and understanding between the UK family business sector and member of both Houses. The Institute for Family Business sponsors and provides Secretariat support for the Group.
An APPG is a group of parliamentarians from all parties and from both Houses formed to discuss a a particular subject area. All-Party Groups provide a forum in which parliamentarians can discuss issues freely, promote particular causes, gather evidence and liaise with Government.
The register for the APPG for Family Business (as at 30 July 2015) is available here.
We encourage Parliamentarians with an interest in family business issues to join the group. For more information please email the Group’s Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
