First Registered: 30/07/2015 • Last updated on: 15/06/2022

To raise greater awareness of the private rented housing sector in Parliament; to provide a forum for parliamentarians to discuss issues pertinent to the sector and engage with ministers, landlords, tenants and other interested parties; and to hold inquiries into policy and operational issues on the sector and produce reports.

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.
