While the House of Commons is dissolved and there are no Members of Parliament, Pictfor has no status as an All-Party Parliamentary Group. Between 3 May and 8 June, rules prohibit groups from being active. The events planned for during this time will be rescheduled for after the election. We look forward to returning after 8 June.
The Parliamentary Internet, Communications and Technology Forum (Pictfor) is the All-Party Parliamentary Group in the Houses of Parliament for the technology sector.
As an All-Party Parliamentary Group, operating under official APPG rules, our membership comprises parliamentarians from both Houses, consumer groups, academic institutions and technology companies. The Group’s purpose is to further understanding of policy issues affecting the Internet, Communications and Technology sector between parliamentarians, the industry, consumer groups and academia. Pictfor’s origins started over 30 years ago as the Parliamentary Information Technology Committee (PITCOM).
