Andrew Mitchell MP: International development in our national interest

Sutton’s MP and Secretary of State for International Development has addressed Conservative Party Conference to argue that promoting global prosperity is firmly in Britain's national interest.

Speaking on Sunday at the Conference in Manchester, Andrew Mitchell, said:

“To deliver real value for money, we have to tackle the root causes of poverty. And chief among these is conflict.

"And these problems affect us here. Terrorism, the drugs trade, infectious diseases, illegal migration – if we want to tackle these problems at home, we have to understand and address their root causes abroad.”
