The information requested falls within the responsibility of the Charity Commission. I have asked the Commission's chief executive to reply.

Letter from Sam Younger, dated 17 October 2011


The Charity Commission does not set quotas or have numerical limits for how many investigations it carries out, or for its other work related to investigations. All cases of concerns are, and will continue to be, examined against our risk framework to determine the most appropriate and proportionate course of action, which may in some cases include an investigation.

I hope this information is helpful.
