This article reports that Peter Ainsworth, former British shadow secretary of state for the environment, urges the government to delay surface area drainage charges for churches and charities. According to Ainsworth, the imposition of these new charges comes at the worst possible time for the voluntary sector which faces a fall in donation income and investment income due to the economic crisis. Bills are expected to rise by an extra £1.5 million if the change is applied to all of its buildings in England, the Scout Association says.
