China Aid Slammed

China Aid Slammed



UK aid being handed to China has been slammed by local MEP Paul Nuttall.



“This superpower has just sent a rocket to the moon and yet we’re sending them aid. I just find it unbelievable. It’s our government that needs a rocket up it.



“People here are struggling to make ends meet and yet we hand over £11.2 billion in foreign aid to countries including £27.4 million last year to China,” said Mr Nuttall, UKIP deputy leader.



“This was supposed to have been axed but it appears from information from the Department of International Development that is not the case. China has £2 trillion reserves so they are hardly struggling.



“Would there be any connection, I wonder, with David Cameron’s recent visit to China and his determination to foster trade with them and encourage investment?”
