Director of SUE BARKER CHARITIES LAW www.charitieslaw.co recently issued the following message:
“You will no doubt have seen the Minister’s proposals for charities law reform released last week: https://www.beehive.govt.nz/release/charities-act-changes-benefit-nz-communities
I personally believe they are an insult to the sector – they will do nothing to benefit New Zealand’s communities and are more likely to act perversely to preclude the sector’s real issues from being addressed. If you’re interested, I was interviewed on Morning Report about it on Friday: https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/morningreport/audio/2018844519/charity-reforms-insult-to-the-sector-lawyer
