Attempt to consult on Guernsey overseas aid defeated

Plans to look into funding overseas aid in Guernsey through only voluntary donations, rather than from normal taxes were defeated in the States today.

Deputies Lester Queripel and Joe Mooney believed it was the will of the public to see the way overseas aid locally is funded changed.

But the Overseas Aid Commission said it was far more about destroying overseas aid altogether.
