Responding to the Prime Minister's Statement on the G20 28th Jun

Today I responded to the Prime Minister's statement on the G8 and G20 Summits. You can read a full copy of what I said here.

I reminded the Prime Minister of the deep frustration within the development community at what it sees as a major retreat by the G8 on its commitment to help the poorest.

I also asked the Prime Minister , who has joined other G20 leaders in endorsing those pro-growth policies that have put the global economy back on the road to recovery, to acknowledge the role of the former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, in shaping that approach and winning support for it at the G20, thereby laying the foundations for that recovery internationally and here at home.
