For immediate release
Responding to the news Danielle Boxall, media campaign manager at the TaxPayers' Alliance said:
“Slashing foreign aid to China is long overdue.
“Previous projects, like helping the Chinese produce rice, saw wanton waste of taxpayers’ cash.
“This should be a stepping stone to a proper and permanent cut in the ostentatious overseas aid budget.”
