The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Extraordinary Rendition was established by Andrew Tyrie in December 2005 in response to allegations that the UK had been involved in the US rendition programme.
- To establish the truth about the scope and scale of UK involvement in rendition.
- To reduce the likelihood of the recurrence of UK complicity in extraordinary rendition by closing the gap in criminal law for such conduct.
The APPG is a parliamentary body, run by Members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. It is an informal, cross-party group that has no official status within Parliament and is not accorded any powers by it. The APPG is supported by contributions from trusts, foundations, nongovernmental organisations and private individuals. It receives no money from any government.
This is not an official website of the House of Commons or the House of Lords. It has not been approved by either House or their committees. The views expressed in this webpage are those of the group.
The APPG's entry in the official Register is available online.
