International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill — Third Reading — 5 Dec 2014 at 13:49

Patrick McLoughlin MP, Derbyshire Dales did not vote.

The majority of MPs voted to to set a target of spending at least 0.7% of national income on international aid and for arrangements to evaluate that spending.

MPs were considering the International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill[1]. The Bill provides for a target of at least 0.7% of national income being spent on international aid and includes arrangements for evaluation of that aid spending.

This vote was on the motion:

  • That the Bill be now read a Third time.

The passing of this motion indicated support for the Bill as it stood and enabled it to continue on its path to becoming law.

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%.
