No new financial aid to India after 2015

British aid to India will come to an end in 2015, International Development Secretary Justine Greening has announced.

Between now and 2015, financial support will be reduced by about £200 million a year.

However, The Sun's Political Editor Tom Newton tweeted:

Justine Greening cutting aid to India today is a smokescreen. Only from 2015, £1.12bn still going there before. Said before by Mitchell.

@guidofawkes @jameschappers DFID confirm £1.12bn is still committed to India until 2015, that not changing.
