ONE Responds to International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt MP’s comments on UK aid and countries’ own spending

Romilly Greenhill, UK Director of the ONE Campaign said “Penny Mordaunt is right to say that countries should invest in health and education and indeed that’s what many of them are doing.

“But the evidence suggests that even if they increase tax collection and prioritise the social sectors, there is still a large funding gap that needs to be filled by aid from the UK and others.”
