Reasses the role of DFID

Comment 8th July 2010

The Department For International Development should be closed and the role of giving aid and development money should be linked to national best interest and controlled by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Why should the country be paying for a department that does something the UN Development Program is already doing (which UK taxpayers also give towards)

Why do we give aid money to India and China two of the world emerging ecconomic super-powers?

Why does this matter?

  • It will save the UK Government money
  • It will streamline Government Departments
  • Reduce Public Sector Workers (and associated pension costs)
  • It will allow the Government to send aid to places that have an impact on national security or interest.
