Senior Tories are cynically kicking the foreign aid budget – Dan Carden

Dan Carden MP, Labour’s Acting Shadow International Development Secretary, responding to the ‘First Aid’ report released today by the Tax Payers Alliance and fronted by Priti Patel, said:

“Senior Tories are cynically kicking the foreign aid budget as they lay the ground for their next leadership race.

“Suggesting that Britain should turn its back on the international rules based system is only going to isolate us on the world stage, and make it even harder to tackle some of the greatest challenges facing the world today such as poverty, inequality and climate change.”
