Hugo backs aid for Palestinian education

East Devon MP Sir Hugo Swire spoke in Parliament to oppose an attempt to limit aid to Palestinian education programmes. Only when a major UK government review concludes later this year should Parliament consider any necessary legal measures on the Government, he added. 

Dame Louise Ellman's International Development Assistance (Palestinian National Authority Schools) Bill would prohibit funding to schools operated by the Palestinian National Authority that do not promote values endorsed by the UNESCO.
