Conservative aid policy

Working papers

This paper assesses the UK Conservative government’s approach to aid and development policy. The paper notes the Prime Minister’s support for the UN Second Development Decade and acceptance of the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) target of 1% of GNP for official and private flows combined. However, projections suggest that by 1974-75 the United Kingdom rate will be a less than 0.5%.
