149 Mr. Penrose asked the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs if his Department has completed its consideration of the consultants examination of aspects of the charities legislation; his proposals for the promised public consultation process; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3686/03]

My Department's consideration of the consultant's review of charity legislation is nearing completion. The next step will be to identify the key issues for inclusion in a consultation document, to be prepared and published with the aim of stimulating wide public debate on the nature of the legislative reforms required.
