Government has finally woken up to the situation facing charities – Preet Kaur Gill

Preet Kaur Gill MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for International Development, responding to the government’s announcement about funding for charities, said:

“While it is welcome news the government has finally woken up to the situation facing charities operating in the UK, nothing in the announcement yesterday will support the vital work of those charities helping the world’s poorest overseas who are disproportionately affected by the coronavirus.

“Many of those charities are struggling to survive and the important work they do will end unless the Secretary of State for International Development pushes the Chancellor to announce further measures as a matter of urgency.”
