Confusion resulting from a recent decision by the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust has caused concernSix leading Scottish academics are among those who have made public their concerns over the confusion that has resulted from a recent decision by the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust (JRRT) Ltd. to help pay the legal fees of the Scottish Liberal Democrat MP Alistair Carmichael.The academics, writing in the Scottish newspaper The National, expressed their fears that the JRRT’s involvement with Alistair Carmichael, the MP for Orkney and Shetland since 2001, had damaged the reputation, in particular, of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF).They stressed that the non-charitable JRRT and the charitable JRF are two ‘wholly separate and independent organisations’ and praised the enormous contribution that JRF had made in Scotland to support research on poverty and social justice issues.
