Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker.

The Secretary of State did not mention once in his speech the European Union or the funding that it gives to international aid. Of course, our taxpayers' money is increasingly spent by the European Union, and I had been hoping to hear from the Secretary of State a bit more about the transparency of EU spending in the third world. Does my hon. Friend share my concerns that the Secretary of State did not either do that or share with the House any further information about the transparency governing the EU's spending of our money?
