Charity Christmas Cards

EDM number 373 in 2007-08, proposed by Malcolm Bruce on 22/11/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Charities and Service industries.

That this House notes the recent Which? and Charities Advisory Trust report on charity Christmas cards which determined in a survey of all the main high street shops offering charity Christmas cards that on average less than 10 per cent. of the purchase price is actually donated to the designated charity with some shops offering as little as 4 per cent.; believes that after expenses and deductions, at least 10 per cent. should be donated to charity in order to be labelled a charity card; therefore calls on the Government to work with the retail industry in drawing up a code of practice for the labelling of charity Christmas cards; and urges retailers not to exploit the public and charities during the season of goodwill.

This motion has been signed by a total of 42 MPs.
