All Party Parlimentary Group - Wood Panel Industry
An All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) is a group of parliamentarians formed to discuss a subject in which members have a common interest and enthusiasm.

The APPG was reconstituted in May 2016. Its members are:
- Steven Paterson MP (Chair)
- Susan Elan Jones MP (Vice-Chair)
- John Stevenson MP (Vice-Chair)
- Alan Brown MP (Vice-Chair)
Make Wood Work is a national campaign aimed at securing the long-term future of wood panel manufacturing in the UK.
