++ Statement from the Charity Commission ++

The Charity Commission for England and Wales has opened a formal inquiry into the charity The Smith Institute today.

Feb 1, 2007 14:19:09

The decision to open an inquiry was taken in the light of new information we have received which raises concerns about some of the charity’s work.

The scope of the inquiry is to determine whether The Smith Institute is both established and operating as a charity advancing the education of the public in the field of study and research into the economy of the United Kingdom.

The Commission has informed the charity of this decision. The Commission has been and continues to engage with the charity in relation to the issues raised.

On being warned of the approach of the Spanish fleet, Drake is said to have remarked that there was plenty of time to finish the game and still beat the Spaniards. On receiving endless journalist’s phone calls at lunchtime, Guido finished another bottle of Chablis with Katy Taylor-Richards, and will still defeat the Sith.
