Government Support for India (28 Apr 2021)

Chris Law: The scenes we have all seen emerging from India are truly tragic and our hearts go out to all those who are suffering. There is nothing more tragic than seeing people dying on pavements outside already overstretched and under-resourced hospitals that are full of covid patients, and dead loved ones being lined up for cremation.

ODA Budget (26 Apr 2021)

Chris Law: Last week, the Secretary of State admitted not only that 60% cuts would fall on Yemen, the world’s worst humanitarian disaster, but that no impact assessment had been undertaken.

Was it a difficult decision to use the money to deliver a windfall for the defence budget and increase spending on nuclear...
