The Labour Campaign for International Development has received more Parliamentary support, this time from Tom Clarke MP. A veteran of International Development discourse, Tom Clarke is a member of the All Party Group on Overseas Development (APGOOD) and introduced the International Development (Reporting and Transparency) Bill in the House of Commons.
“I am delighted to see the promotion of International Development within the Labour Party. Labour has an outstanding record on development issues. A department of Government focused on such an important subject has sent an important message to everyone who cares. Labour’s commitment to achieve the 0.7% GNI United Nations target has even led opposition parties to do the same. Achieving the Millennium Development Goals is a crucial objective and a Labour Government with a renewed mandate is much more likely to lead the world in making all this a reality.”
