My right hon. and learned Friend has raised a very important issue. The former International Development Secretary, my right hon. Friend Penny Mordaunt, took action immediately when concerns about the actions of non-governmental organisations first became public, and she and the UK have led the way. I know that the current International Development Secretary, my right hon. Friend Rory Stewart, is looking very closely at the report and at what further action we can take. The action that we as the UK have taken is not just about our interaction with NGOs; we have brought the international community together to look at that issue and we will continue to lead.
