Welcome to The APPG on Extraordinary Rendition

Andrew Tyrie MPAndrew Tyrie MP


The All Party Parliamentary Group on Extraordinary Rendition was established by Andrew Tyrie in December 2005. It is a cross party grouping of MPs and Peers from the British parliament who have come together to examine extraordinary rendition and related issues.


The questions asked by... the All-Party Parliamentary Group are precisely the sort of parliamentary
interrogation and questioning that is wholly appropriate.

Former Foreign Secretary David Miliband MP, 21 February 2008
