The Secretary of State for International Development, Rt Hon Penny Mordaunt, has not recently met with the Secretary of State for Transport to discuss the reduction of road fatalities across the world. However senior officials are working together across Departments as road safety is an identified shared priority.

This year the Department for International Development extended its £4.5m funding to the Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF) with an additional £5.2m. We work closely with Department for Transport and Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) on this issue with DHSC matching our funding to GRSF.
