UK Foreign Aid

Standing by our promise for foreign aid spending 

Response from Sir Peter to the Chancellor's Statement and Budget

After the Chancellor's Statement in November 2020, I made clear my strong support for continuing to meet our national commitment to providing 0.7% of our national income as official aid.


I share in the desire that poorer countries have the opportunity to work and to trade their way out of poverty; that our country lead the way in providing support internationally; and that we not renege on the commitment we made in our previous two General Elections. 


The aid total is not a fixed sum. It ebbs and flows in size dependent on our GNI changes. 


I have committed to working with any colleagues across the house to restore the cut.

This continues through 2021.

We stood on a manifesto of protecting foreign aid spending.
