Charities Bill introduced to Northern Ireland Assembly
The Northern Ireland Charities Bill 2007 is going through its first reading at the Northern Ireland Assembly today, after its introduction to the Northern Ireland Executive last month.
The order is expected to define the terms ‘charity’ and ‘charitable purpose’ and to establish a charity commission for Northern Ireland and a charity tribunal, a body that will provide a quick and easy way to appeal against commission decisions and deal with questions independent of any dispute. The order will also create a register of charities and set out new rules on fundraising and collections.
