Oxfam welcome new laws to target 'rogue fundraisers'

Oxfam has welcomed the prime minister's announcement that new laws are to be introduced to target charity fundraisers that employ "unacceptable" tactics.

Oxfam welcomes these changes and will work with regulators to rid the sector of rogue fundraisers. We work tirelessly to protect the rights of vulnerable people and recognise the need for clearer more transparent rules. The British public are amazingly generous and I hope this means that a balance can be found to enable people to give without receiving unwanted calls.

– Mark Goldring, Oxfam chief executive
