MPs are to vote on the Government’s cut to Britain’s foreign aid budget.
It will be a straightforward “yes or no” vote.
The budget will either return to its 0.7% of national income or be fixed at a new rate of 0.5%.
The cut is to help ease the cost of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Conservative manifesto for the 2019 general election committed the rate to stay at 0.7%.
Making the rate was made law in 2015, and it is an internationally recognised target.
Oxfam and ActionAid have warned projects are being curtailed as a result of the cuts.
Commons leader Jacob Rees-Mogg told MPs there would be a general debate on the issue.
He said: “It will be a yes or no answer.
“Does this House wish to see the public finances kept under reasonable control?
“Does it recognise there are limits to what we can do?”
