Business rate warning over Wales' charity shops
A third of charity shops in Wales could close if business rate relief on their premises is cut, a charities group has warned.
Members of the Charity Retail Association (CRA) are lobbying AMs at the Senedd later in a bid to avert a hike in the rates they pay.
A review proposed changing the relief rate from 80% to 50% and tightening eligibility criteria.
The Welsh government said a task group was seeking the views of charities.
