Aid Sector: Safeguarding

The following is an extract from the statement entitled Aid Sector: Safeguarding on Tuesday 20 February 2018.

DFID, other Government Departments and the National Crime Agency work closely together when serious allegations of potentially criminal activity in partner organisations are brought to our attention. We are strengthening this work, as the new strategy director at the NCA will take on a lead role for the aid sector. [Official Report, 20 February 2018, Vol. 636, c. 47.]

Letter of correction from Penny Mordaunt:

An error has been identified in my statement.

The correct wording should have been:

DFID, other Government Departments and the National Crime Agency work closely together when serious allegations of potentially criminal activity in partner organisations are brought to our attention. We are strengthening this work.
