Farming APPG

First Registered: 31/01/2018 • Last updated on: 15/06/2022

The APPG will allow Members to learn more about the world of British Farming. Through engagements and visits to an array of sites across the industry, the APPG will encourage parliamentarians to develop greater understanding and appreciation for the vital role that farming plays to our nation’s health and economy.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
