Charity Commission withdraws Official Warning issued to the Institute of Economic Affairs
A response from IEA Chairman Neil Record
The Official Warning issued to the Institute of Economic Affairs on 5th February 2019 has been withdrawn by the Charity Commission, with immediate effect.
The Warning was issued earlier this year for the IEA’s publication and launch of a trade paper, Plan A+.
The Warning was withdrawn last week, and the Charity Commission has made an undertaking to remove the Warning from its website.
Commenting on this update, Chairman of the IEA’s Board of Trustees Neil Record said:
“The Institute of Economic Affairs is delighted that the Charity Commission has decided to withdraw the Official Warning with immediate effect.
“I am greatly looking forward to working with the Charity Commission in the months and years ahead.”
