Mark Littlewood appears on BBC Radio 5 Live

Mark Littlewood, Director General at the Institute of Economic Affairs has appeared on BBC Radio 5 Live to discuss the UK international aid budget and whether or not it is time to rethink it.

In the interview Mark argues that the intentions and impact of certain aid projects should be audited, particularly when large amounts of taxpayer’s money is being used. We are not looking at our international aid budget in the right way – we have a target on how much we should spend every year but not on how effective and efficient it is.
