U.K. To Maintain Aid Budget Of At Least 0.7% Of GNI, Prime Minister May Says

The Guardian: May says U.K. will not cut aid in wake of Oxfam scandal
“The U.K.’s aid budget will not be cut as a result of the sexual exploitation scandal affecting the sector, the prime minister has confirmed in a push back against the right wing of her party. There have been calls for the government to scrap the commitment to spend at least 0.7 percent of gross national income on foreign aid … May told the Commons on Wednesday that the development sector needed to get its house in order, but insisted the U.K. would maintain its overall aid budget…” (Rawlinson, 2/21).
