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.

Following the EGM held in the Churchill Room, House of Commons on 13 June 2018, the APPG group was confirmed as

– Stephen Kerr MP (Chair)

– Susan Elan Jones MP (Vice-Chair)

– Bill Grant MP (Vice-Chair)

– Alan Brown MP (Vice-Chair)
