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.

- Private sector development

- Land availability
- Skills, Materials and new technology
