UK'S ROLE IN FIGHTING GLOBAL POVERTY

That this House welcomes the UK Government's leadership in international development and is proud of Britain's historic record; recognises the importance of the UK in keeping its promise to spend 0.7 per cent of gross national income on overseas aid from 2013; further welcomes the impact that UK aid has had on reducing and tackling the causes of poverty in the world's poorest places, reaching six million people with emergency food assistance since March 2011 and sending 5.3 million children to school; notes that in 2013 the UK will chair the G8 for the first time since Gleneagles in 2005 when important development commitments to Africa were made; further notes that in part thanks to those commitments there has been dramatic progress in sub-Saharan Africa with 423,000 fewer child deaths in 2011 than in 2005 and 21 million more children in school compared with 2005; supports the Prime Minister in putting international development issues high on the G8 agenda in June 2013 and leading global efforts to tackle hunger; and further recognises that effectively and efficiently reaching 0.7 per cent this year will save and change the lives of millions of people who are looking to lift themselves out of poverty in the world's poorest countries.
