The Foreign Secretary has been clear that we remain committed to the Official Development Assistance (ODA) rules set by the OECD's Development Assistance Committee (DAC).

The UK has led the way in working with others to modernise the rules where they are out of step with modern development challenges. We continue to review priorities for further reform and maintain active engagement with the DAC and DAC members.
