River Thames APPG

First Registered: 16/03/2016 • Last updated on: 04/05/2022

The Thames catchment has many millions dependent upon the health of the Royal River Thames. It provides drinking water, sewage disposal, recreation, peace and tranquillity on its banks. It provides drainage and at times takes flood waters out to the sea. The APPG provides an essential conduit to delivering sustainable management.

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.
