All-Party Parliamentary Group

Inheritance & Intergenerational Fairness

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Inheritance & Intergenerational Fairness (APPG IIF) was established in February 2019 to promote understanding of the issues generated by inheritance and intergenerational fairness issues and to facilitate discussion on methods of reform. 

STEP provides Secretariat support for the Group.

The agenda for the APPG IIF 2019 is as follows:

  • Inheritance introduction and overview (Tuesday 12 March 2-4pm)
  • Inheritance  reliefs and proposals (Tuesday 23 April 3-5pm)
  • Government perspective (Tuesday 30 April 3-5pm)
  • International perspective (Wednesday 15 May 3-5pm)
  • Future reforms (Tuesday 28 May 3-5pm)

The register for APPG IIF is available here


In May 2019 the APPG produced a paper with some interim recommendations which were submitted to the Office of Tax Simplification in relation to simplifying inheritance tax. The recommendations proposed a number of ways in which certain aspects of the current inheritance regime could either be removed or altered to remedy the current complexities. The paper was also copied to the Chancellor Philip Hammond who sent a letter in response on 24 May 2019. The APPG is currently working on a more comprehensive paper which it will submit to the Government in October 2019.

The paper and letter can be found here:

We encourage Parliamentarians with an interest in issues relating to inheritance tax and intergenerational fairness to join the group
