Preet Kaur Gill comments on the gov’t cutting its support to Syria in half since 2019

Preet Kaur Gill MP, Labour’s Shadow International Development Secretary, commenting on the Government cutting its support to Syria in half since 2019, said:

“Slashing life-saving support to a country where more than 90% of the population have been plunged into poverty after a decade of death and destruction is disgraceful.

“This is a devastating reminder of the real world impact the Conservatives’ politically motivated decision to abandon their manifesto commitment on aid will have on the world’s most vulnerable people.

“By cutting vital lifesaving aid to the Syrian people the Conservative government continue to preside over Britain’s shameful retreat from the world stage at a time when we need the international community to act together.”
