Richard Taylor, executive director of fundraising and marketing at Cancer Research UK and chair of the Institute of Fundraising, pulled out of moving to the consumer charity Which? because of a conflict over the way the charity responded to the Daily Mail's investigation of fundraising practice.

It is understood that Taylor disagreed with the decision by Which? to respond to the story with a call from its executive director, Richard Lloyd, for the government to carry out a full review of fundraising rules and regulations. This would put an end to bad practice and save the sector's reputation, Lloyd said.

There are fears among fundraisers that such a review could lead to increasing oversight of the sector by the government and an end to the existing system of self-regulation.

Taylor has been an advocate of self-regulation, throwing his weight behind many of the recommendations in the PwC review of fundraising self-regulation, published last July.
