answer text <p>The UK is firmly committed to ensuring aid reaches the most vulnerable, including those from religious minorities, where they constitute part of that category. We conduct regular assessments through a range of sources to ensure assistance is provided in conformity with the international humanitarian principles of neutrality and impartiality.</p><p> </p><p>UK funding is distributed on the basis of need to ensure that civilians are not discriminated against on the grounds of race, religion or ethnicity. DFID does not identify or record beneficiaries by their religion and ethnicity and does not plan to collect disaggregated population data on minority groups. Our partners carry out comprehensive vulnerability assessments to ensure aid is reaching those most in need, and we are confident that minorities, including faith communities, are not overlooked in this process.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The 0.7% target is a UN target which the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) reports adherence to through its Official Development Assistance (ODA) statistics. ODA is the official international standard used to measure aid flows and is measured on a calendar year basis to allow international comparison of donor effort, since fiscal years vary across donor countries.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Aid spending is subject to the same rules as all other public expenditure. In line with Treasury rules on Managing Public Money, departments through their accounting officers have ultimate and direct responsibility for their share of the aid budget and remain accountable to Parliament and UK taxpayers for how they spend it. The Government has well established mechanisms to govern aid spending and DFID provides support to other government departments to help strengthen the quality of their aid spending and maximise its impact on poverty.</p> more like this
