From the TUC

Progressive international development and traditional charity aid

02 Oct 2012, by in International

I’ve just blogged on the Progressive Development Forum that the TUC supports about the speech made on Monday by Labour’s Shadow International Development Secretary Ivan Lewis MP, which I think hit a lot of the right notes. He made the argument about the size of the aid budget part of a wider debate about social and economic justice, and rejected the paternalistic distinction between policies for the UK and policies for developing countries.
