During International Development Questions I called upon the Secretary of State to take action so that the UK was helping nations to connect to clean water supplies.
1 in 10 of the worlds population still do not have access to clean water. Without clean water and sanitation we will see all other investments in health and education count for nothing. It is the foundation on which international development is grounded.
I was pleased to see the Secretary of State agreed with me and I hope that we will now see him follow up his words with actions.
