Overseas Aid And Christian Aid Scotland

EDM number 2273 in 1992-93, proposed by James Wallace on 06/07/1993.

That this House notes that the real value of Government aid to developing nations in 1991 fell to only two-thirds of its 1979 value, whilst over the past 10 years the general public has trebled the amount which it has donated; regrets the failure of Her Majesty's Government to make any significant move towards meeting its United Nations commitment to spend 0.7 per cent. of gross national product on overseas aid; therefore welcomes the initiative taken by Christian Aid Scotland to seek an increase in the overseas aid budget by ú100 million targeted to help the poorest nations; and calls upon Her Majesty's Government to respond positively to this initiative to match the spirit of liberality which has been so evidently shown by voluntary contributions of British people.

This motion has been signed by a total of 47 MPs.
