The speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, has ruled that a vote on an amendment to scrap proposed cuts to the foreign aid budget will not be heard or voted on by MPs.

The proposed move, by Conservative former minister Andrew Mitchell, was not in scope of the Advanced Research and Innovation Agency Bill.

It was intended to make the government commit to reinstating the 0.7% target from next year – from the funding for this agency if it is not met through alternative means.

The commitment to keep foreign at at or above 0.7% of GDP was in the Conservative party manifesto at the last election.
