All Party Parliamentary Group on Infrastructure
All Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs or APGs) are informal cross-party parliamentary groups run by and for Members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. They may involve individuals and organisations from outside Parliament.
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Infrastructure (APPGI) was formed in November 2008 following a select committee investigation into construction and skills.
It brought together 40 parliamentarians and representatives from industry to discuss the issues surrounding infrastructure, the use of underground space, planning and delivery. It aimed to highlight the importance of infrastructure to the economy and to society and arrange a programme of visits, discussions and receptions to inform members.
