The review of the Charities Act 2006 will begin later this year and is likely to finish in 2012, the Minister for Civil Society, Nick Hurd, has told MPs.

In response to a parliamentary question from Sam Gyimah, the Conservative MP for East Surrey, Hurd said: "A person must be appointed before 8 November 2011 to undertake an independent review of the Charities Act 2006.

"The timetable for the review itself has not been finalised, but the review is likely to take between six and nine months, concluding in 2012."

Hurd said the review would be put before parliament once it had been completed.

The 2006 act contains a requirement that a review of the legislation should be started five years after it was passed.
