Membership of the Conservative Group for Europe (CGE) and the Young Conservative Group for Europe (YCGE) is open to anyone who supports Conservative values and close institutional, economic, political and security relations between the United Kingdom and our European neighbours. Click here for CGE values. CGE membership is open to all who support our values and have no other political party affiliation.
