Anna Turley: I beg to move amendment 1, in clause 1, page 2, line 15, at end insert— ‘(2) In Schedule 6 to the Charities Act 2011 (appeals and applications to Tribunal) insert in the appropriate place— “Decision of the Commission to issue a warning under section 75A to a charity trustee, trustee for a charity or a charity The persons are— (a) the charity trustees of the charity; and (b)...

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Official warnings by the Commission (15 Dec 2015)

Anna Turley: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. We know that judicial review is pretty much inaccessible without legal assistance, and that cuts to legal aid have had a hugely detrimental impact on people who are trying to access justice.

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Official warnings by the Commission (15 Dec 2015)

Anna Turley: The hon. Gentleman makes an excellent comparison, but what happens if, at the end of that representation, the Charity Commission does not agree? Where is the right of redress or recourse after that? Judicial review is too large, bureaucratic and expensive. It is a complex, time and resource-intensive activity that is largely inaccessible without legal assistance. It is widely known as the...

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Official warnings by the Commission (15 Dec 2015)

Anna Turley: I thank the Minister for his thorough and helpful response. Again, we will not press the matter to a vote, but we still have significant concerns. As a football fan I liked the Minister’s metaphor about yellow cards, but with a yellow card there is no immediate repercussion other than having to be a bit more careful about the next tackle. For a charity, there are potentially quite damaging...

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 2 - Investigations and power to suspend (15 Dec 2015)

Anna Turley: Clause 2 sets out the powers for the Charity Commission to take action where a charity fails to remedy a breach as specified under a warning. Our amendment 3 sought to ensure that where a warning had been challenged through the charity tribunal the charity was not automatically able to take action under clause 2. Given that we withdrew our previous amendment, I decided not to move amendment...

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 3 - Range of conduct to be considered when exercising powers (15 Dec 2015)

Anna Turley: I thank the Minister for that thorough and detailed explanation. He will be aware that we have tabled no amendments to this clause because we fully support it.

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 4 - Power to remove trustees etc following an inquiry (15 Dec 2015)

Anna Turley: As with the previous clause, we support this measure. We believe it will give the Charity Commission an important power to safeguard the integrity of a charity, particularly its public profile. Misconduct and mismanagement are extremely serious and should be taken extremely seriously. As the Minister identified, the ability to address this loophole has long been missing from the Charity...

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 5 - Power to remove disqualified trustee (15 Dec 2015)

Anna Turley: I thank the Minister for that full and thorough explanation. As trustees of charities—which many members of the Committee are—many of us feel it is important to fulfil our duties fully and with confidence, should a fellow trustee board member not fulfil their  duties and be disqualified as a result. The Charity Commission’s standards for disqualification are high—it has set the bar...

Anna Turley: I beg to move amendment 4, in clause 6, page 5, line 2, at end insert— ‘(4) An order under this section will automatically be discharged on the closure of the inquiry under section 46 which is referred to in subsection (1).’

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 6 - Power to direct specified action not to be taken (15 Dec 2015)

Anna Turley: I thank the Minister for his helpful response. It was extremely important to hear his clarifications, particularly about the six protections that will be in place before the power is used, and the clear and helpful examples he gave of instances in which the power will be used. The amendment relates not to the warnings and the tribunal dealt with in clause 1 but to whether the power will...

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 7 - Power to direct winding up (15 Dec 2015)

Anna Turley: I am happy to take any interventions. We are indeed rattling through these clauses and are the beneficiaries of some excellent analysis of the Bill during its long progress through the other place and in pre-legislative scrutiny. A lot of action has been taken to clarify and improve the Bill. Indeed, it is clear from its drafting that this clause has benefited from much scrutiny. Clause 7...
