There are a range of legislative and regulatory issues that impact on the wood panel industry for which WPIF interacts with and communicates with Government bodies and others to promote the interest of members.

All Party Parlimentary Group - Wood Panel Industry

 

The APPG’s aim is to raise within Parliament issues of concern to the wood panel industry, and provide Parliamentarians with accurate information about matters relating to the 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 Groups are not controlled by a party whip and only backbench members of both Houses (i.e. those who do not hold a ministerial position) are eligible to join.

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. 
 
The future competitiveness of the industry is under threat - due to distortion of an already fragile wood supply and demand balance in the UK, caused by subsidies available to the energy generators under the Government's Renewables Obligation.
