International Development Bill

The International Development (Reporting and Transparency) Bill will today be voted on for its third reading by the House of Commons.  The bill requires the government to produce an annual report assessing progress toward the 0.7% target, the UN's millennium goals and the effectiveness of aid.

As the second-reading debate showed, there is considerable support for this bill on both sides of the House. 

Update: the Bill passed the House of Commons unanimously.
