Submissions to the Call for Evidence

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Social Integration has received an excellent range of submissions from a wide range of stakeholders to its Call for Evidence which closed on 9 September 2016.

Commenting on the submissions, the APPG Chair Chuka Umunna MP said: “We are very pleased to see such a great response to our first call for evidence.
