Whistleblowing APPG

First Registered: 29/08/2018 • Last updated on: 15/06/2022

Whistleblowers are a vital element of a transparent society. In 1998 the Public Interest Disclosure Act was introduced to protect employees who speak out. In the face of many recent scandals the APPG is looking at the effectiveness of this legislation and how it might be improved.

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.
