Working with Parliament
We work closely with parliamentarians and assembly members to provide information about the problems that affect our clients.
We prepare briefings for debates and provide parliamentarians with regular updates on our policy work. Our latest parliamentary briefings are available online.
We also run the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Citizens Advice. This gives parliamentarians an opportunity to express their support for the Citizens Advice service and to stay up to date with policy developments which impact upon our service and our clients.
The group is co-chaired by Stephen Lloyd MP, Jonathan Edwards MP, Sarah Newton MP and Fiona O’Donnell MP. The other officers are Huw Irranca Davies MP, Pamela Nash MP and Baroness Howe of Idlicote.
There are over seventy members of the APPG on Citizens Advice, with members from across the political spectrum and from both Houses of Parliament.
In the most recent meeting we presented a new tool that allows MPs to view Citizens Advice data by constituency.
For more information about the APPG, or any aspect of our work with Parliament, please contact our Parliamentary Officer, Tamsin James.
