To enable parliamentarians, of all parties and in both Houses, to be informed about significant practice and developments in the field of the arts, health and wellbeing; discuss relevant government and opposition policies; and provide a springboard for parliamentary action, such as debates and questions for oral and written answer.

APPG Supplied Content

APPGs can register with Parallel Parliament and submit files and articles to be placed here.

Parallel Parliament offers the facility for APPGs to submit written content and files, which are made available through this page.
