ONE Responds to statement on cuts to UK aid

Today, after months of speculation, the UK Government has finally revealed  some additional details of their plans to cut the UK aid budget. Responding to the news, Romilly Greenhill, UK Director of anti-poverty organisation the ONE Campaign, criticised the move:

“Now we’ve seen where the axe has fallen, it’s clear the Government’s words are not matched by actions. 

“The cuts reveal a Government which makes bold declarations about the importance of investing in girls’ education and preventing future health crises, but takes a scythe to the very projects needed to deliver on these ambitions – all in the midst of a pandemic and the same year we’re due to host major summits on these issues.

“The promised new era of British leadership is going to be very hard to deliver whilst we’re turning our back on the world’s most difficult challenges.”
