Tories have a toxic track record on fighting poverty in the UK and overseas – Dan Carden

Responding to the Tories refusal to confirm whether DFID will remain a stand-alone department if the Conservatives win the election, Dan Carden said:

“The Tories have a toxic track record on fighting poverty in the UK and overseas, so it’s no surprise they refuse to guarantee the future of DFID and its vital work.

“We need a real change in how we tackle global poverty – and that’s why a Labour government won’t turn its back on the world, we will champion an independent department to tackle poverty, inequality and climate change.”
