Autonomous and Electric Vehicle Thematic Visit to California, February Recess 2019

The British-American Parliamentary Group plans to send a bi-partisan delegation to California in the February 2019 Parliamentary recess to look at both the regulatory and the innovation aspects of electric and autonomous vehicles.

The delegation will visit San Francisco and Los Angeles. The programme will be arranged by the British Consulate Generals in San Francisco and Los Angeles, in consultation with the British-American Parliamentary Group.

Annual Reception for the American Ambassador, H.E. Hon. Robert Wood Johnson, 26th February 2019

The British-American Parliamentary Group, in partnership with BritishAmerican Business, is to host a reception in honour of the American Ambassador, H.E. Hon. Robert Wood Johnson, on Tuesday, 26th February 2019 at 6.00pm in the State Rooms, Speaker’s House, by kind permission of Mr. Speaker.

We hope that this will provide an opportunity for many members of the Group to meet the Ambassador, who will be accompanied by a team of his key staff.

As there is very limited space at the venue, we would have to restrict the event on a first come first served basis. BAPG Members wishing to attend should please contact Hannah Mitchell at the British-American Parliamentary Group, email: mitchellhk@parliament.uk.
