Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Refugee Families (28 Feb 2018)

Wed, 02/28/2018 - 00:00
Preet Kaur Gill: The UK simply cannot speak with any authority on tackling the global refugee crisis until we get our own house in order. Time and again, the Government’s international development policy is held back by what other Departments are doing, including arms sales in Yemen, tax and trade deals that hurt developing countries, and a foreign policy that has forgotten human rights. Will the...
