Dan Rogerson, Liberal Democrat MP for North Cornwall, has been named chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Wholesale Group.

The newly formed group will formalise the Federation of Wholesale Distributors network of political supporters. "This is a great opportunity for us to take our members' concerns right to the heart of government and engage MPs' help in driving our policy agenda," said FWD CEO James Bielby.

Four MPs have already arranged visits to depots in their constituencies, including Clive Betts and Brian Binley.
