Statement on the election of new APPG officers - 9 February 2018

We are pleased to announce that following an APPG EGM conducted on Monday 5 February 2018 we have two new co-chairs, and two new MPs representing the APPG on Fair Business Banking and Finance.

This EGM was called following Clive Lewis MP’s promotion to the Shadow Front Bench, which meant that he was no longer permitted to stand as co-chair for the APPG.

Lord Cromwell (Crossbench) has also stepped down from his position as co-chair due to other commitments, but will continue as vice-chair.

As a result, we have two new co-chairs on the APPG. Kevin Hollinrake MP (Conservative) and Norman Lamb MP (Liberal Democrats) will step up to take on the position of co-chairs moving forward.

Martin Whitfield MP (Labour) and Lisa Cameron MP (SNP) have joined the APPG as vice-chairs.

Sammy Wilson MP (DUP) and the Earl of Lindsay (Conservative) will also continue as vice-chairs.

If you have any questions, or would like to contact the APPG, please email Ollie at
