This is the final session of the Public Administration Select Committee’s (PASC’s) post-legislative scrutiny inquiry into the implementation and operation of the Charities Act 2006. The Committee will hear first from the Chair and Chief Executive of the Charity Commission for England and Wales on the Commission’s role, responsibilities and funding.
