53 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 07 November 2012

Should churches and independent schools be regarded as charities? There are real benefits to charitable status, but what kind of organisations should qualify? The thousands of students in Scotland who have waited weeks for their loans to arrive.

Presenter: Winifred Robinson
Producer: Jonathan Hallewell.
