PRCA: APPGs perform a valuable role in our democracy

The Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) has responded to a report in The Daily Mirror about the resourcing of All Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs).
PRCA Public Affairs Board Chair, Liam Herbert MPRCA said:
“It is clear that APPGs perform a vital function in the democratic process. They offer Parliamentarians access to expert insight and ensure policymakers in this country are properly informed on the matters on which they make law.
“Transparency and disclosure are vital. PRCA members observe the highest ethical standards and are regulated by the industry’s most rigorous self-regulation mechanisms: the PRCA Public Affairs Code and the PRCA Professional Charter. PRCA members are required to disclose details of their public affairs activity every quarter and are also required to disclose any APPGs they provide a secretariat role for and the names of the funders and any associated organisations.”
The PRCA is participating in the Committee on Standards inquiry into APPGs. You can read the PRCA’s latest consultation response here.
