Labour responds to news Conservative rebels are to force a vote to reverse aid cuts

Lisa Nandy MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, responding to the news that Conservative rebels are to force a vote to reverse aid cuts, said:

“On Monday, just days before world leaders arrive in Cornwall to discuss the global response to the pandemic, the Government faces defeat over its short-sighted and self-defeating decision to slash aid.

“The Conservative Government should do the right thing and reverse this cut.”
