To ask the Scottish Government whether it considers 18 months is an extensive period of time for the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator to have been investigating a complaint without concluding their investigation.
Answered by: Aileen Campbell 29 March 2019
The Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) is a non-ministerial office and part of the Scottish Administration. OSCR is an independent regulator and does not form part of the Scottish Government.
In line with the framework agreement between the Scottish Government and OSCR, given that this question asks about matters that are the responsibility of OSCR and that Scottish Ministers are not accountable for OSCR’s operations the Member is invited to refer the question to OSCR.
