THE NEWSPAPER THE INDEPENDENT i OF 11TH OF NOVEMBER 2014 PUBLISHED THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE BY: JONATHAN OWEN .

CONTROVERSIAL POLICY DECISIONS ARE BEING LEFT UNCHALLENGED BY CHARITIES WHICH FEAR CRITICISING THE GOVERNMENT BECAUSE MINISTERS HAVE UNDERMINED THEIR ROLE IN POLITICS ,ONE OF BRITAIN`S  MOST RESPECTED CHARITY FIGURES HAS CLAIMED .

THE DISABILITY RIGHTS ACTIVIST SIR BERT MASSIE  SAID THE GOVERNMENT WAS “DOING IT`S UTMOST TO ENSURE THAT THE RIGHT OF THE VOLUNTARY SECTOR TO CAMPAIGN AGAINST HARMFUL POLICIES IS INCREASINGLY DIMINISHED ”

IN A REPORT RELEASED BY THE CIVIL EXCHANGE THINK -TANK  HE SAID MINISTERS HAD “INTRODUCED A NUMBER OF POLICIES  WITHOUT SUFFICIENT CONSULTATION “IGNORING AN AGREEMENT FOR 12 -WEEK  CONSULTATIONS TO ALLOW CHARTIES TO MAKE SERIOUS CONTRIBUTION TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF POLICY “

SIR BERT`S COMMENTS FOLLOW A REPORT BY THE PANEL ON THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE VOLUNTARY SECTOR WHICH ACCUSED THE GOVERNMENT OF “TREATING CHARITIES THAT IT PREDOMINANTLY FUNDS LIKE MERE ARMS OF THE STATE .

READ MORE ON THIS REPORT AT THE INDEPENDENT i .WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK THEM FOR THESE EXCERPTS.
