RISHI Sunak went back on the Government’s commitment to spend 0.7 per cent of GDP on foreign aid as he said it was ‘difficult to justify’ to the British people.
The UK will cut its foreign aid spending to some of the poorest nations on earth, Rishi Sunak has confirmed in his announcement also freezing salaries of public sector workers.
Mr Sunak claims it is “difficult to justify” to the British people at a time of such crisis, as he confirmed the Conservative party would scrap their manifesto to help the neediest abroad reducing the commitment to spend 0.7 per cent to just 0.5 per cent.
