ActionAid Chief Executive, Girish Menon, commenting on the appointment of the Rt Hon Priti Patel MP as Secretary of State for International Development, said:

“We welcome Priti Patel MP to her new role as Secretary of State for International Development.

“The work of the development department is vital to tackling some of the world’s most entrenched problems. As the UK redefines its international relationships we look forward to working with the new Secretary of State to tackle global poverty, support women and girls in the world’s poorest countries and keep international development high on the political agenda.”
