Prosperity Fund: Change of Ministerial Accountability

Volume 691: debated on Thursday 25 March 2021

The cross-Government prosperity fund arrangement will end on 31 March and prosperity programming will move to the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) as part of a machinery of Government transfer. The transfer will help drive strategic coherence across overseas development assistance (ODA) programmes. This will allow the Foreign Secretary to make decisions on aid to implement the UK Government’s integrated review of security, defence, development and foreign policy.

The machinery of Government change will take effect on 1 April 2021.
