HC Deb 26 March 1998 vol 309 cc228-9W
Mr. Swinney

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the responsibilities of the Charity Commission in Scotland. [36135]

Mr. McLeish

The Charity Commission for England and Wales has no responsibilities in Scotland. The supervision and regulation of charities in Scotland is governed by the terms of Part I of the Law Reform (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Scotland) Act 1990 and supporting regulations and is carried out by the Scottish Charities Office under the authority of my noble and learned Friend the Lord Advocate.
