All Party Parliamentary Group on Infrastructure (APPGI)

The APPG on Infrastructure (APPGI) highlights the importance of economic infrastructure in the UK amongst parliamentarians, government and industry.

Please note:

Parliament has been dissolved and as such there are no longer MPs. Because of this, the APPG on Infrastructure no longer exists. We hope to return once the new Parliament is sitting.

The APPGI convenes those stakeholders in order to discuss how best to ensure society gets the infrastructure it needs. ICE is the official Secretariat for the APPGI.


What is the APPGI?

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Infrastructure (APPGI) is Parliament’s leading cross-party group dedicated to economic infrastructure in the UK.

Roles and purpose

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Infrastructure (APPGI) is Parliament’s leading cross-party group dedicated to economic infrastructure in the UK.

In recent years, the APPGI has helped bring infrastructure to the forefront of the United Kingdom's politics.

From raising the profile of major infrastructure projects and their benefits amongst parliamentarians to advising the government on critical matters relating to the built environment, the APPGI is well established as a key forum for engaging parliamentarians in infrastructure policy issues.

The APPGI is chaired by former Treasury and Transport Minister Andrew Jones MP.

Supporting him as co-chair is Alan Brown MP, the former Shadow Spokesperson on Energy Security and Net Zero for the SNP.

We also have many Parliamentary members listed below.
