CALLING FOR G8 ACTION – Labour and MP Gwynne

2013-635012822989558699-955Denton and Reddish MP Andrew Gwynne has joined Labour’s call for David Cameron to take action on aid, tax and transparency at the G8 for a world free from hunger.

There is enough food in the world for everyone. But 1 billion people still go hungry and 2.3 million children die from malnutrition every year.

The campaign, launched by Labour’s International development spokesman, Ivan Lewis MP, aims to highlight the crucial opportunity our Prime Minister will have to take action against this global injustice.

Andrew Gwynne MP said:

“It is deplorable in this day and age that one billion people in the world go hungry. We must put a stop to this global injustice. This is why I am supporting this campaign and calling to ensure that David Cameron fulfils his promises to take action on aid, tax and transparency.”

Ivan Lewis MP, Shadow Secretary of State of International Development, said:

“With the G8 on our doorstep, the UK again has an opportunity to put in motion global reform that can lead to meaningful change.

“We share the concern of NGOs that David Cameron is not sufficiently preparing the ground to achieve agreement for radical improvements in this area. This has to change in the days ahead.”
