This is an e-petition debate following a petition uploaded to the Petitions website. As this e-petition attracted over 100,000 signatures, the Petitions Committee agreed that a debate will be held.

The petition in question, initiated by the Mail on Sunday, is entitled: “Stop spending a fixed 0.7 per cent slice of our national wealth on Foreign Aid”.

The debate will be held under the motion, “That this House has considered e-petition 125692 relating to foreign aid spending”.

The debate will be led by Steve Double MP, a member of the Petitions Committee.

A digital debate will be held on this petition on Twitter on Monday 13 June using the hashtag #UKAidDebate ahead of the debate in Westminster Hall.

Steve Double MP, Member of the Petitions Committee, and Stephen Twigg MP, Chair of the International Development Committee, will be asking the public a series of questions aimed to inform the Westminster Hall debate. Other Members are welcome to participate or read the twitter debate on Twitter via #UKAidDebate
