‘(1) Section 5 of the Small Charitable Donations Act 2012 is amended as follows.

(2) After subsection (5), insert—

“(5A) For the purposes of this Act, local Scout Groups, Guide Groups, Army, Navy and Air Force Cadet groups are not considered to be connected.”’—(

This new clause would ensure that local Scout Groups, Guide Groups and Army, Navy and Air Force Cadet Branches are able to claim under the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme individually, rather than being considered as part of single national charities for the purposes of the Scheme.
