About the APPG

Welcome to the website of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Challenger Banks and Building Societies. Our aim is to review the regulations of the banking and financial sector and to promote fair competition, removing entry barriers and encouraging diversity of service. 

We have bought together MPs and peers from across the political spectrum for this purpose. Find out more about who is involved by visiting our members page.
