Responding to the announcement by Dominic Raab, Foreign Secretary, that the Government will legislate to allow cuts to overseas aid, Danny Sriskandarajah, Oxfam GB Chief Executive, said:
“Every day aid is cut will see hundreds more people die unnecessarily. By choosing to buy military hardware rather than pay for clean water or medicines, the Government will diminish the UK’s standing in the world.
“MPs of all parties who believe in a truly global Britain or who have spoken out against breaking the UK’s promise to the world’s poorest people now have the chance to vote down this legislation and make the Government think again.”
