The group will consider some of the regulatory and legislative barriers migrants face and will identify solutions to inform policy makers in the future. The group will also provide opportunities for MPs and immigration lawyers to discuss and work together on key areas of immigration law and policy.

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.
