PASC to take evidence on Charity Chief Executive Pay

11 December 2013

The Public Administration Select Committee (PASC) will hold a one-off evidence session on the topic of chief executive pay in the charity sector. This takes place on Tuesday 17 December in Committee Room 16, committee corridor, Palace of Westminster. 

The Committee will hear from a number of chief executives, chairs, and trustees of charities and charity sector umbrella bodies.


At 9.30am

  • Caron Bradshaw, CEO, Charity Finance Group
  • Martyn Lewis, Chair, National Council for Voluntary Organisations
  • Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, CEO, Mary’s Meals

At 10:30am

  • Sir Stephen Bubb, CEO, Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations
  • Carolyn Gray, Trustee, Christian Aid
  • Charles Wake, Chair, St Andrew’s Healthcare
  • Mark Wood, Chair, NSPCC

Particular issues to be explored may include:

  • public opinion on levels of charity chief executive pay;
  • the role of a charity chief executive in charities of different size and scope;
  • the factors used by charity trustees to determine chief executive salaries; and
  • the role of the Charity Commission and current reporting rules for transparency on pay levels;

The evidence session will form part of the Committee’s ongoing work considering the regulation of charities. PASC has responsibility for scrutinising the work of the regulator of the charity sector, the Charity Commission, and the government department responsible for charity policy, the Cabinet Office.
