To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what (a) plans he has and (b) his timescale is for consulting with relevant stakeholders on the Government’s International Development Strategy.
The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Secretary is leading work on the new International Development Strategy, which will be cross-government in scope. The International Development Strategy will set out the UK's approach to development, in line with the Integrated Review. We look forward to engaging with a range of external stakeholders on the development of the strategy over the coming months. This will build on the extensive engagement and call for evidence that was undertaken to inform the Integrated Review.
