What do politicians really think of aid?

It’s been a turbulent last few weeks in British politics, but the political parties managed to hold their annual party conferences in the midst of Brexit and prorogation. But where does international development fit into this political maelstrom? What do politicians and MPs really think of aid? In this episode, experts provide their experiences and insights of parliamentary advocacy to breakdown how much the parties really support international development.

Bond's Paul Abernethy chats to Martin Drewry, director of Health Poverty Action, Lucy Drescher, head of parliamentary advocacy at RESULTS, and Ali Stiby-Harris, head of UK influencing at Save the Children. You'll also hear snippets from our interviews with politicians from Labour, Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and the SNP.
