Perhaps this would be a useful moment for the Minister to reflect on the five questions that were triggered for me by the NCVO's letter, which raised  concerns about the comparability of the Charity Commission’s data and HMRC’s data. If he was able to get HMRC to try to provide answers to those five questions, I suspect that would be useful for the charity tax forum in its meetings with HMRC officials, so that it could probe the organisation and effectiveness of the scheme.
