Scrap Foreign Aid – UKIP Leadership Election Policies 2019
The international development budget is mandatory at 0.7% of UK GDP. This is absurd. We should keep a pot of money available for genuine international emergencies. But if there is no major emergency in a given year, we simply carry the money forward. The 0.7% of GDP currently devoted to vanity projects every year should instead be channelled into border security and fighting crime.
