New clause 1 seeks to add a requirement that the Treasury, within 12 months of the Act’s coming into force, publish a report to enable the House of Commons in particular to consider carefully how the Act is working and to provide an opportunity for us to make the case for further reform.

There has been much debate during the two weeks we have considered the Bill about the number of charities that will benefit from the scheme. It would be useful to see a report within 12 months to see how many charities are in practice benefiting. It was useful to have the Minister’s clarity about the Treasury estimates of expenditure under the scheme in each of the next three years.
