§ Ms. Walley
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received from Amnesty International about the provisions of the Charities Bill.
§ Mr. John Patten
My officials have had one meeting with representatives of Amnesty International. We have also received six letters from right hon. and hon. Members forwarding letters from their constituents. These representations all concern the system of exemption orders for public charitable collections created by clause 72 of the Bill.
