Following the October 2012 AGM of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Building Societies and Financial Mutuals, it has been agreed to widen the remit of the Group to cover all types of mutual organisation and to create the All Party Parliamentary Group for Mutuals.

The expanded remit will see the Group promote all types of co-operatives and mutuals across Parliament, whilst continuing our crucial work to highlight the advantages of building societies and financial mutuals. We will soon announce an ambitious new agenda and look forward to working with Members to promote both existing mutual business as well as new co-operative and mutual solutions across the wider economy.

There will be a Parliamentary Reception to launch the Group on Monday 20th May, 4-6pm in Dining Room A, House of Commons.
