Motion text

That this House welcomes the Commission for Africa in highlighting the desperate action that is needed to promote development in that continent; notes that Africa has heard many good words before but that it is concrete action that is now needed both in Africa and from the international community; urges the international community to raise its aid contributions by an extra 30 billion pounds per year; and notes that for the international community to be genuinely serious about helping Africa to earn its way out of poverty it must focus on properly implementing the Doha rounds of the WTO and reaffirm this commitment in Hong Kong at the end of this year.
