  1. From this article:

    Stephanie Biden, a partner at Bates Wells Braithwaite, says the commission’s decision was "not particularly surprising", given that it was "under quite a degree of pressure", primarily from politicians at Westminster.

    "The trade-off that the Brethren have made in order to get charitable status is that they are now accountable in how they administer their church practices and the working of their doctrine to a secular regulator," she says.

    She says that if the charity were to be found in breach of the revised trust deed, the commission could in theory strip it of its assets and apply them to another, similar church. "Such action seems to me to be quite unlikely, but theoretically it is there," she says.
