Consultations on Charities Act

The Minister for Justice & Equality, Alan Shatter, told Caoimhghin O Caolain (SF, Cavan Monaghan) that he intended to invite charities and other interested parties for their views on the implementation of the Charities Act: a document was currently in preparation and he hoped to publish it early in the new year.  The consultation period would run for eight weeks (Dail Eireann, Debates, 4th December 2012, 311-312).  It would look at the establishment of the Charities Regulatory Authority, statutory registration and charitable status, along with the type of information that a Charities Regulatory Authority might require each year.
