Your correspondent Margaret Littlejohn is pleased the Government has carried on giving foreign aid (Leading The Way, News Views, April 27).

Billions of pounds are going to some of the richest countries in the world.

The money is not being used for what it should be spent on.

Some of these countries are putting it in their leaders’ bank accounts.

Our Government borrows this money to give it away.

We have people in this country who have been told they cannot have cancer drugs because we cannot afford it.

It is time we looked after our own people first. If I was Prime Minister I would stop foreign aid tomorrow. — D. HINCHLEY, Acacia Road, Balderton.
