Brown abandons promise to world’s poorest says Moore

“This Queen’s Speech is nothing but another broken promise to the world’s poorest people,” said the Liberal Democrat Shadow International Development Secretary.

Commenting on the Government’s downgrading of its commitment to enshrine in legislation the target for 0.7% GNI aid spending, to a commitment to bring forward a draft bill in today’s Queen’s Speech, Michael Moore said:

“Gordon Brown made a firm commitment to enshrine the 0.7% target for aid spending in statute, but just seven weeks on he has abandoned that promise.

“With a General Election only months away, and the Tories’ commitment to development issues far from certain, this Queen’s Speech is nothing but another broken promise to the world’s poorest people.”
