One way of meeting our target to spend 0.7% of GDP on overseas aid, in a way that builds support among voters who want a guarantee on the best housekeeping of their hard-earned money, would be to establish, say, a Commonwealth venture capital fund, into which that part of the 0.7% that Priti Patel has cause to believe is misspent, or fraudulently used, could be paid. This fund would then be used for job-creating investment programmes in the Commonwealth as and when the need was proved, and not arbitrarily governed by the need to spend money by the end of the financial year.
