§ Mr. Greenway
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to regulate the methods by which charities raise funds; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mellor
My right hon. and learned Friend has no plans at present to do so. Legislation already exists to control charitable collections in the street and from house to house; and the provisions of the criminal law relating to fraud and deception apply where appropriate.
