ODA spending for 2020

Preet Gill MP, Labour’s Shadow International Development Secretary, responding to the First Secretary of State’s letter regarding Official Development Assistance Secretary (ODA) spending for 2020, said “‘The British public are rightly proud of the impact U.K. aid has in supporting the poorest and most vulnerable in the world.

“As we face the reality of lower GDP, projects and programmes that are not transparent or have been found to have no or limited development impact should be the focus of re-evaluation.

“Labour wants the aid budget to deliver value for money for British taxpayers and urge the government to make sure it is focused on tackling poverty.”
