Responding to the publication of the Government’s Integrated Review Of Security, Defence, Development And Foreign Policy, Danny Sriskandarajah, Oxfam GB Chief Executive, said:
“Increasing the size of the UK’s nuclear stockpile while arguing that we can’t afford to meet our promises to the world’s poorest shows the Government has got its priorities badly wrong. It is exactly the wrong way to project Global Britain on the world stage.
“The goals of promoting human rights, equality and fairness set out in the Review are admirable. But pouring billions into military hardware while cutting food, medicines and clean water for people on the brink of famine is about as unfair and unequal as it is possible to imagine.
“I urge the Prime Minister to think again, do the right thing and reverse the aid cuts. British leadership in the fight against global poverty is in the national interest, it increases our international standing and is the right thing to do.”
