Responding to Michael Moore MP's announcement that he would introduce a private member's bill to enshrine the UK's aid promise in law, Kathleen Spencer Chapman, Oxfam senior policy adviser, said:

"We're delighted Michael Moore has taken this chance to champion the fight against global poverty, we hope his Bill will command all-party support.

"This is a great opportunity for the Government to make good on its pledge to enshrine our commitment to the world's poorest in law thereby protecting it from future political fashions."
