MPS controversially voted to cut foreign aid earlier this week.

In a vote in the House of Commons, a bill which would see the percentage of gross national income spent on foreign aid reduced from 0.7 per cent to 0.5 per cent was passed.

This ultimately means the UK will be reducing its annual spend on countries in need of support by £4 billion each year.

The bill proved to be controversial, with 24 Conservatives rebelling, and voting against it.

Despite this resistance, which included former prime minister Theresa May, the bill passed with 333 votes in favour, to 298 in opposition.

In a bid to stop further rebellion from inside his party, Chancellor Rishi Sunak attempted a compromise, promising that the decision to cut aid would only be in place until public finances improve.
