40 years ago we committed to investing 0.7% of our national income on UK aid. 4 years ago all 3 major UK political parties said they would enshrine that commitment in law.
On Friday 12th September, that promise could be fulfilled with the second reading of the International Development Bill. All we want from your MP is a promise to be there.
Please join me in signing ONE’s petition:
The rules in parliament are complicated, but if 100 supportive MPs turn up, we’ve got a good chance of making sure that we keep the UK’s promise to spend just 0.7% of national income on aid (which is less than a penny in the pound), meaning that millions of lives will be changed for the better. So please click on the link above to make this promise a reality!
