All Party Groups

All Party Group Business Diary

What are All Party Groups?

All Party Groups provide a forum by which MLAs and outside organisations and individuals can meet to discuss shared interests in a particular cause or subject.

The Register All Party Groups

All Party Groups must submit an application form for Registration.

A Register of All Party Groups is compiled and maintained by the Clerk of Standards and is regulated by the Committee on Standards and Privileges. The Register is available for inspection by Members in the Assembly Library and available for public inspection, by appointment, in the office of the Clerk of Standards.

The main purpose of the Register is to record which All Party Groups are recognised by the Assembly; who their officers are, and details of any assistance the Group may receive from outside the Assembly.
