The Government is considering a crackdown on charities that send money in an envelope to guilt-trip recipients into donating.

Responding to a complaint by the Conservative peer Baroness Trumpington, Baroness Crawley said the Government could intervene in 2011 when its funding for the Fundraising Standards Board is due to expire.
