Education: Charities

Volume 507: debated on Monday 8 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families whether any additional changes to arrangements for registration of educational charities have been agreed with the Charity Commission since the publication of the protocol on academies in 2009. (319670)

There have been no changes on the registration of educational charities since the publication of the protocol on academies in 2009. Officials are in discussions with the Charity Commission on the ways in which academy trusts can be better supported through the process of registration as charities. The Secretary of State has agreed in principle to become the principal regulator for voluntary and foundation schools, subject to agreement on the details of the associated responsibilities.
