Holding answer received on 15 June 2015

As a country that has met its commitment to spend 0.7% of GNI on international development, the UK’s priority for the UN Financing for Development Conference is to provide a solid foundation for the post-2015 summit in September and the climate meeting in December.

Negotiations are still underway and we are working to ensure the UK priorities form a core part of the agenda going forward.
