Understanding Lords committee on charity governance

Following the announcement that the House of Lords would have a new ‘ad hoc’ committee on charity sector governance for the next parliamentary session *, NCVO’s parliamentary bod has put together ‘Lords ad hoc committees – everything charities and campaigners need to know‘.

The new session starts after the Queens Speech on 18th May, which means committee membership could be announced in June, and the first meetings by July. These could kick off with general evidence sessions that will allow the committee to develop a clearer idea of what they are hoping to cover.
