https://www.cyclinguk.org/sites/default ... _pages.pdf

Page 70 has the total salary costs for all staff, and a breakdown according to job function, and page 71 covers salaries of staff who earn more than £60k.

Thanks for that :)

Was that the same 'Regulator' who appeared on cycle chat forum...shudder. What an obnoxious bit of work that name was on the 'other site'.

That's right. The Charity Commission can remove charitable status, but "the government" can't.

Ultimately, of course, the Charity Commission acts to enforce charity law and the government could change the law. But the new law would then apply to everyone equally: the government can't pick on an individual charity and remove its status.

Likewise the government can't take away a specific charity's tax exemptions just because it doesn't like what the charity says.

But they could fail to give grants or contracts for work.

No doubt. But the post was that government can't remove charitable status.

Am I the only one who finds the typeface used by cuk a bit strange?
..
Does it make sense to bring the new head honcho from outwith the organisation? How much has she had to do with cuk in the past?

The CEO of CUK doesn’t need to have extensive knowledge of cycling. Sarah Mitchell admits to not being able to mend a puncture.
Her expertise appears to be about obtaining funding for charities.

Perhaps it would be evidence that cUK was achieving its charitable aims if they were able to convince her of the benefits of cycling so that she became a committed cyclist.

In the CUK link she's described as a keen cyclist, or do you judge commitment on a puncture repair basis?
That would rule out a few, notably Anne Mustoe.

You cynic. Her expertise seems to be in running charitable organisations, I'm sure there's more to that than raising funds.
