Last week's Budget cost Britain's charities £70 million a year in Gift Aid. The Chancellor did not mention that in his Budget speech, he failed to mention it in the Red Book, and he failed to mention it in any of the Budget documentation. Was the Prime Minister informed, and does he approve?

Thank you for raising this. The Tunbridge Wells based charity for which I work - currently 'International Care & Relief Ltd.' - from tomorrow 'Build Africa' will, based on the amount of donations on which we have been able to claim in this year, lose over £27,000 a year in Gift Aid.
