International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill — Second Reading — 0.7% of National Income on International Aid — 12 Sep 2014 at 13:50

Dominic Grieve MP, Beaconsfield did not vote.

The majority of MPs voted to set a target of at least 0.7% of national income being spent on international aid and to create a new body to carry out independent evaluation of aid spending.

The majority of MPs voted in favour of the International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill allowing it to continue on its path to becoming law. As a result of this vote the Bill was committed to a Public Bill Committee to discuss it in detail.

The UK's Gross National Income was $2.521 trillion in 2013[2], 0.7% of which is around 17 billion dollars or around 10 billion pounds.

In 2013 the UK reportedly already met this target spending over 11 billion pounds on aid.[3]

The 2013 budget predicted UK Government revenue for 2013-14 would be £620 billion[4]; as a fraction of this revenue aid spending of £11 billion would amount to 1.7%.
