Westminster MPs to focus on conflict

The ministry for peace group reports:

"After many months of quiet effort, ministry for peace has secured enough support in Parliament to set up an official All-Party Parliamentary Group on Conflict Issues. The purpose of the APPG, as formally stated in the Parliamentary Register, is 'To encourage dialogue, on the basis of expert information and opinion from across the political spectrum, on issues relating to conflict; especially on the practical means to prevent, transform and resolve violent conflict.'"

They obviously see this as a significant achievment and I hope indeed that it might be so. Read more at:, including the list of MPs on the group.
