DFID Secretary of State Priti Patel on investing in Israel

“My department has an important role to play when it comes to Israel — and it will play its part by investing in the right things, for the right people — but also in initiatives which can bring people together. These will include co-existence programmes. But I am also rooting out abuse in the system to ensure that that money is spent in the right way. I will be assiduous in ensuring that we follow the money to our transparency — and follow the outcome as well, because that is what we should be doing with British taxpayers’ money.”
