Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Power to disqualify from being a trustee (5 Jan 2016)

Anna Turley: I beg to move amendment 7, in clause 11, page 10, line 5, after “person” add “or persons”. This amendment aims to ensure that, where there has been a collective failure to act, a whole trustee board should be held accountable. We support clause 11 in principle, but we seek to make some amendments to it. At present, the Charity Commission has no general power to disqualify a...

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 11 - Power to disqualify from being a trustee (5 Jan 2016)

Anna Turley: I am indeed reassured by the Minister’s comments, and I look forward to working with the Charity Commission to ensure that we clarify some of the issues involved. I take his point about the ability to dismiss entire boards for systemic governance failures. It is an important power for the commission to have, and I want to ensure that it goes far enough. Conditions D, E and F raise issues...

Anna Turley: I thank the Minister for a thorough and helpful explanation of the steps involved and the safeguards that will be in place. To some extent, it sounded like  there would be a triple lock through the commission’s criteria and the notice period for the tribunal, which is reassuring. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Cardiff Central for her helpful contribution. She made the really...

Anna Turley: I thank the Minister for his response and other members of the Committee for their interesting and thought-provoking questions, which help us and set out the benefit of going through a Bill line by line in Committee. It allows us to set out some of the issues that still need clarification. In light of the Minister’s answer, and particularly the reassurance that he gave at some length on the...

Anna Turley: I beg to move amendment 6, in clause 11, page 11, line 33, after “conduct” insert, “both relevant and serious”. To ensure a more narrow and relevant definition of “conduct”.

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 13 (5 Jan 2016)

Anna Turley: I support the Minister’s view on the provision. It is technical, but important. The clause inserts into the Charities Act 2011 new section 184A, which sets out that where a person is disqualified either under section 178 or new section 181A of the Charities Act 2011, which we have discussed in some detail in  Committee, and where they are an officer of a corporate body that is a charity...

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 14 - Fund-raising (5 Jan 2016)

Anna Turley: The Opposition welcome clause 14 and have tabled no amendments to it. However, it is important and deserves discussion, so I will take some time, with the leave of the Chair, to make a few points. Due to the clause’s importance and, in particular, because of some of the public exposure that led to it, it is essential to explore some of the issues behind it. It amends section 59 of the...

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 15 - Power to make social investments (5 Jan 2016)

Anna Turley: I thank the Minister for setting out the views and values behind the clause, which we welcome. Social investment is an important part of the fabric of our community and voluntary sector.

As the Minister set out, the Bill is the first attempt to define in statute social investment, which...

Public Bill Committee: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 16 - Reviews of the operation of this Act (5 Jan 2016)

Anna Turley: The Opposition support this clause because it is a simple and practical way of providing for the Minister to review the operation of the Bill. As he mentioned, we have had quite a lot of discussion and debate today about the timeframe for monitoring the Bill. We have had a lot of debate about the onus that much of the Bill puts on the Charity Commission, about many of the new powers and about...
