The NFRN has congratulated Labour MP Steve McCabe on his re-election as chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Retail Crime.


Mr McCabe, MP for Selly Oak, was re-appointed at a meeting last week. He has been chairman of the cross-party group since November 2018.


NFRN National President Stuart Reddish said:

Under Steve McCabe’s chairmanship, the APPG has made real progress in making the government more aware of the true impact that retail crime has on independent retailers and in the communities in which they serve.


We are delighted that he has been re-elected as chairman and look forward to working closely with him to continue to push in parliament the concerns, not just of our members’, but of the whole independent sector on retail crime.”


Baroness Eaton and MPs Alex Norris and Peter Bottomley were appointed as vice chairs of the group, for which the NFRN is responsible for the secretariat.
