An anti-aid campaign started by the Mail on Sunday has precipitated a debate in parliament.

An anti-aid campaign started by the Mail on Sunday has precipitated a debate in parliament.

In response to an online petition calling for the goverment to scrap the UK's commitment to spending 0.7% of its national income on development aid, the House of Commons petitions committee have scheduled a debate on the UK's aid spending.

If you are #ProudOfAid and think that the UK government should honour its commitment to the world's poorest people, get in touch with your MP to ask them to attend the debate and speak in favour of aid. Check out our Aid hub for inspiration and templates you can use.
