Legitimate scrutiny 2020 update

Stephen Delahunty made this Freedom of Information request to Charity Commission for England and Wales

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

Charity Commission for England and Wales did not have the information requested.

Dear Charity Commission for England and Wales,

In a speech published on 8 October, Baroness Stowell said:

"I have seen action, including litigation, that seems motivated by, or part of, a wider, aggressive response to the Commission’s legitimate regulatory scrutiny.

"And I have seen challenges that seem less motivated by the best interests of the charity’s purpose and beneficiaries, and more about shielding individuals from accountability to protect their personal reputations."

Based on the the chair's description of actions, litigations and challenges above, can the commission provide the criteria it uses to assess such cases?

Yours faithfully,

Stephen Delahunty
