The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Rural Services is a cross party Group of MP’s from rural constituencies that come together around 4 times a year to promote debate on the provision of rural services and to issue periodic reports. It comprises MPs and Lords. The register entry for the group can be viewed here.
The Rural Services Network established this Group and provides all the secretariat services.
The APPG is helpful to organisations providing rural services giving them the opportunity to put their issues and ideas directly to MP’s who pass the information on to Ministers. This Group has recently been helpful in getting the Government to re-consider the funding formula for Local Government and has its own Rural Fair Share campaign website
