All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal cross-party interests groups. They have no official status within the House of Commons, and run by and for Members of the Commons and Lords.

I am a member of several All-Party groups, and they reflect my political interests as well as issues important to my constituents in Manchester Gorton. I am particularly interested in the Muslim world, poverty and deprivation, the environment, and issues of race, equality and faith.

New rules governing All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) came into force on 1st April 2024, and stipulate that MPs can only serve as chairs, vice chairs or officers of a maximum of six APPGs. I now serve on the following APPGs:

  • Parks and Green Spaces – Chair
  • Islamic and Ethical Finance – Vice Chair
  • Muslim Women – Vice Chair
  • Uyghurs – Vice Chair
  • Curry Industry – Secretary
  • Fuel Poverty and Energy Efficiency – Officer
