Charities Bill: Extension of Committee Stage

12 Feb 2008 Denise Copeland    Last updated: 14 Aug 2014

The Charities Bill will not be enacted in the first part of 2008 as had been anticipated.

The Committee for Social Development, which is currently considering the Bill, has been granted an extension until 27 June 2008 to allow the Committee sufficient time to consider the views of all submissions and to compile its report on the Bill. It is now envisaged that it will be late summer at the earliest before the new charities legislation comes into being.
