The Charities Bill, which will consolidate existing charity legislation, is going through Parliament.
The Bill will bring together three separate Acts which relate to charity law - the Recreational Charities Act 1958, the Charities Act 1993 and the Charities Act 2006.
The Charities Bill has been prepared by the Law Commission working with the Office for Civil Societyand the Charity Commission.
Nick Hurd, minister for civil society, said: "Charity legislation is extremely difficult to navigate, particularly for the untrained reader. The Charities Bill is to be welcomed. The Bill will make it easier for people to understand and follow charity law.
"I am grateful to the Law Commission for preparing this consolidation."
The Bill had its first reading last week in the House of Lords.
