Wilson said that large charities "could be forced to sign up to a new fundraising watchdog" funded by charities themselves and given responsibility for the Code of Fundraising Practice, currently controlled by the Institute of Fundraising. Of the proposed Fundraising Preference Service, which would enable people to opt out of all charity fundraising phone calls and direct mail, the minister said anyone who was "inundated with fundraising marketing material from charities will be able to press 'reset' and stop receiving this material".
