The APPG on Infrastructure (APPGI) highlights the importance of economic infrastructure in the UK amongst parliamentarians, government and industry.
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.
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 to bring infrastructure to the forefront of British politics. From raising the profile of major infrastructure projects and their benefits amongst parliamentarians, to advising the government on key matters relating to the built environment, the APPGI is well established as a key forum for engaging parliamentarians in infrastructure policy issues.
Over the past decade, political recognition of infrastructure as a key driver of prosperity has grown significantly. Infrastructure is a key plank in the government's 'Build Back Better initiative. It has an important role in supporting the transition to net-zero and helping the UK's economy to level-up and reduce regional inequalities.
The Group is chaired by former Treasury and Transport Minister, Andrew Jones MP. He is supported by Alan Brown MP as Co-Chair, who is the Shadow Spokesperson on Energy and Climate Change for the SNP.
In addition to Alan and Andrew, the group has 6 official officers including: Shadow Minister for Industrial Strategy, Chi Onwurah MP; former Transport Minister, Stephen Hammond MP; former Department for Communities and Local Government Minister, Lord Stunell; former Commercial Secretary to the Treasury and Minister of State at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Baroness Neville-Rolfe, Lord Berkeley, Lord Chidgey, as well as another dozen MPs and Peers as members.
