The APPG on European Relations is supported by


Welcome to the website of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on EU Relations.

A referendum on the United Kingdom's future membership of the European Union (EU) was held in June 2016 and a majority who participated voted to leave.  Consequently in March 2017, the UK Prime Minister invoked the provisions of the treaties of the EU to begin the process of the UK's withdrawal from the organisation.  The UK Parliament will play a major role and will vote on whether to accept the agreement reached between the UK Government and the EU which will govern the terms of exit and future relations. 

We are a large group of UK Parliamentarians, mostly elected Members of the House of Commons but also the House of Lords, drawn from all the major political parties in our country. 

The people we serve expect politicians of different parties to work together in the national interest to secure the best possible outcome for our communities.

With that objective in mind, we are working to secure the best and closest possible relationship with the EU and its 27 member countries who have been our allies, partners and friends in building a better UK and a better world.
