This is the decision taken on Tuesday this week (16.6.20) to mege the Department for International Development with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
I was so incensed by this decision that I started a petition on the government website. I’m not convinced that I have worded it in the best possible way to attract signatures, and it looks like it is being raised in the House of Commons anyway.
Even if it is debated, a petition could indicate the strength of feeling for this issue. It takes a couple of weeks apparently for petitions to go through the system before they appear on the government website. If the government still haven’t backtracked on the decision, please look for and sign the petition here.
