The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Literacy launched in November 2011 and is committed to ensuring parliamentary knowledge and support for the latest research, policy and best practice in the field of literacy.

The group is chaired by Lucy Powell MP, with Stephen Twigg MP as the vice chair and Lord Knight, Lord Tope and Stephen Clarke MP acting as officers.

We carry out parliamentary commissions and projects to explore major policy issues.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Literacy held its most recent meeting on Tuesday 4 December 2018. This event was the group's AGM and a roundtable discussion was held exploring how best to strengthen early language development and literacy in policy and practice. A policy paper on this issue will be produced in the new year.
