Official Page

The APPG is the leading forum for parliamentarians from both Houses and all parties to work together to discuss ways of tackling CO poisoning, improve government policy on CO safety and raise public awareness of the threat posed by deadly CO gas.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
