All-Party Parliamentary Group for ADR evidence session on 17 June 2019

30 May 2019

On Monday 17 June (15.00-17.00), the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for ADR (to which CIArb is Secretariat) is holding an evidence session entitled  “How can government make more use of Conflict Avoidance Boards (CABs)?”.

The session will be held in Houses of Parliament Committee Room 18.

The APPG members are interested in understanding the following:

  • How do CABs operate?
  • What are the advantages of having a CAB and what data is there to support this?
  • Should CABs be used more widely on public projects?
  • How can Government do more to promote the use of CABs?

A panel of MPs will hear evidence from leading experts in the subject including Ed Spencer MCIArb (Director and Head of Client Service, Arcadis), Wolf Von Kumberg FCIArb (Former Legal Director, Northrop Grumman Corporation), Les Mosco (Former Commercial Director, Ministry of Defence) and Christopher Miers (Founder and Managing Director, Probyn Miers). Confirmed MPs include John Howell MP, Christina Rees MP, Bob Neill MP and Alberto Costa MP.

The session will be held on Monday 17th June (15.00-17.00) in Committee Room 18, Houses of Parliament. (For directions, please visit the Parliament visitor page. Visitors should allow at least 30 minutes to get through security at the Cromwell Green entrance).

Any CIArb members who are interested in attending can RSVP to Robin Hayden (rhayden@ciarb.org), and security instructions will be provided.
