0.7% Vote on Monday: Please contact your MP today – it’s now or never to save UK aid

On Monday there will be a crucial vote which would restore UK aid spending to 0.7%. 

Make no mistake – winning this vote will save lives.

Please contact your MP, by phone or email, to urge them to support the vote. You can find their contact details here: www.members.parliament.uk/FindYourMP

Urge your MP to support the amendment to the Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill, tabled by Andrew Mitchell MP on Monday.

Here are some points you can make:

  • UK aid has a life changing impact, and with the COVID pandemic increasing poverty around the world, is needed now more than ever
  • Yes, eventually we will need to address the UK deficit, but not yet, and it should not be done by cutting support for some of the world’s poorest people
  • The UK public still support aid – recent polling shows 53% of the public support aid, compared to only 22% against
  • As the UK hosts the G7 and the COP26 climate talks this year, this vote will encourage a race to the top among other wealthy countries to do more

If you do one thing this year to help LCID, please make it this.
