It has not been a quiet August and September for me. I presented the Review that I have undertaken for the governement of the Charities Act 2006 to Parliament on July 16 – the last day before the House of Commons rose for the recess. It has been a nine month task invoving 6 seminars out of London, 15 questionnaires on the Cainet Offfice website and innumerable meetings.
Despite my best efforts at brevity the final review ran to 150 pages and contained 112 recommendations for action.
While pretty well received by the Sector there has beena lot of follow up needed. So my summer has contained a lot of enquiries to be answered and speeches to be made.
So the Party Conferece season may seem tame by comparison!
