HC Deb 08 June 2000 vol 351 cc297-9W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what has been the net change in each year since May 1997 in the number of forms issued by his Department which(a) charities and (b) other voluntary organisations are required to complete. [123942]

Dr. Howells

There are no forms issued by the Department specifically aimed at charities or other voluntary organisations. Where charities are incorporated as companies under the Companies Acts they will of course need to file company accounts and other event-generated forms in the normal way.

Efforts are continually being made to simplify these forms. A recent example is the repeal of the requirement to list a director's other directorships on the company annual return.
