Supporters Notification Form

River Thames All-Party Parliamentary Group

Below is a copy of an email that was sent today to the group’s ‘Chair & Registered Contact’:-


This email contains important information about the rules for APPGs, and advice on good practice over the period of the 2017 General Election.

I use the word “must” when stating a rule.


During the Dissolution period


From 3 May 2017 to 8 June 2017, All-Party Parliamentary Groups must not be active. Parliamentary rules prohibit groups from making public comment, holding events, undertaking research or issuing communications, or allowing others to do so in their name. In any event groups must not engage in any sort of campaigning and they must observe the rules on non-party campaigning, available on the webpage for All-Party Parliamentary Groups (see link below).


It is recommended that a group which has a website, webpages or social media account should explain there that while the House is dissolved, there are no Members of Parliament and it has no status as an All-Party Parliamentary Group. It should not otherwise update its webpages or social media account until after the Election on 8 June.


It is recommended that groups which need officers’ authorisation to pay invoices etc should obtain this before the House dissolves if at all possible.


Registering in the new Parliament


Groups will keep their registered status, and may function as normal between the date of the election and 15 September 2017. They may use the portcullis emblem and call themselves All-Party Parliamentary Groups. But in order to retain their status after 15 September and to appear in the first Register of the new Parliament, they must hold an inaugural meeting and must submit a registration form by 15 September 2017. The Register will be published shortly afterwards.
