Teresa Pledges to Back Life-Saving Bill

Teresa with Mary Creagh MP, Labour's Shadow Secretary of State for International Development, in the House of Commons.

Teresa has pledged to vote to enshrine the UK’s commitment to the world’s poorest people in law, completing a course set out by the last Government.

On Friday 5th December 2014, MPs will vote on a Bill to enshrine in law the UK’s promise to donate 0.7% of our Gross National Income to international aid – in line with aspiration first put forward over 40 years ago.

Teresa said:

“I’m proud to support Britain’s life-saving, life-changing aid programme and to vote for this law to help some of the world’s most vulnerable people.


I know that many of my constituents are concerned about the welfare of people living in some of the poorest countries in the world, and I am contacted regularly by those who want the Government to commit to offering support.


British aid makes a huge difference to millions of people – we should be proud of what our generosity and humanity can do for those in need and what it says about us as a country.”
