BWB's Rosamund McCarthy has been quoted in Third Sector and Civil Society Media expressing her concerns about the draft guidance published by the Charity Commission on its new power to issue official warnings to charities.

"As lawyers we will be forced to advise clients in receipt of an official warning that, if they do not comply, they will run the risk of significant regulatory action by the commission. Since a warning carries no right to appeal to the charity tribunal, this is a significant concern," she said. "Depending on how the power is exercised, notwithstanding the expense and difficulty, I predict that there is going to be an increase in the number of judicial reviews against the Charity Commission."
