Charity Commission “not fit for purpose”, says PAC

  1. The Commons Public Accounts Committee (PAC) report on the Charity Commission, published 5 February 2014, is damning (http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201314/cmselect/cmpubacc/792/792.pdf). PAC Chair Margaret Hodge says that the regulator of charities is “not fit for purpose” (http://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/public-accounts-committee/news/publication-of-report-tax-reliefs-on-charitable-donations/).
  2. The MPs specifically criticise the Commission for being “too slow and inefficient” investigating Afghan Heroes.
  3. In its rebuttal to the PAC, also published 5 February 2014, the Commission rejects the criticism of its investigation into Afghan Heroes. It “expects to announce further developments in the case shortly” (http://www.charitycommission.gov.uk/news/charity-commission-rebuts-pac-criticism/).
