LONDON (Reuters) - Britain reduced its foreign aid spending commitment on Wednesday to 0.5% of gross domestic product from 0.7%, causing an immediate outcry from international development organisations and the spiritual head of the Church of England. Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak carries the "Spending Review 2020" document as he leaves Downing Street, in London, Britain, November 25, 2020. “Cutting the aid budget during a global pandemic is like closing fire stations during a heatwave,” said Patrick Watt, Director of Policy, Public Affairs and Campaigns at Christian Aid. The 0.7% target, originally introduced by Tony Blair when he was prime minister, was a commitment made by the ruling Conservative Party in the run-up to last year’s election and repeated by Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Prior to Sunak’s announcement, former prime ministers Blair and David Cameron had urged the government to retain the target.

He also said Britain should be proud of what it spent on its foreign aid budget, adding “that will continue”, when he was asked whether the government would cut how much it spent on it.

Johnson gave the reassurance to an 8 year-old child named Monti, who had written to him asking if Father Christmas would be able to deliver gifts this year. “I have put in a call to the North Pole and I can tell you Father Christmas is ready and raring to go, as are Rudolph and all of the other reindeer,” he said. Earlier this year, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern took similar measure to reassure young citizens that the tooth fairy and Easter bunny would be classed as essential workers and still able to go about their business during the pandemic.

Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak leaves Downing Street, in London, Britain, November 25, 2020. In the 2019/20 year, which ended as the country began to be hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, borrowing was just over 56 billion pounds, or 2.5% of GDP. Britain’s economy has been hit harder by the coronavirus pandemic than those of many other rich nations. Sunak has rushed out emergency spending and tax cuts to offset the crisis, including a recent extension of the government’s centrepiece jobs protection scheme. Sunak said the cost of the fight against coronavirus was now 280 billion pounds this year, up from a previous estimate of about 200 billion pounds.

LONDON — The U.K. announced Wednesday its largest peacetime borrowing level ever as the coronavirus pandemic is forecast to cause the largest plunge in economic output for 300 years. In his spending review Wednesday, British Finance Minister Rishi Sunak announced £280 billion in public spending to guide the country through the aftermath of the pandemic. A further £2.6 billion will be given to devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as part of the £55 billion expenditure in 2021. "High as these costs are, the costs of inaction would have been far higher, but this situation is clearly unsustainable over the medium term," Sunak told the House of Commons on Wednesday. As of Wednesday morning, the U.K. has recorded more than 1.5 million cases of Covid-19 and 55,935 deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

London (CNN Business) The UK economy is suffering its worst recession in more than 300 years and failing to secure a new trade deal with the European Union will make its recovery even longer and more arduous, according to the country's independent fiscal watchdog. Talks are stuck on fishing rights, government aid for companies and how to settle disputes. Tariffs, export quotas, red tape and other trade barriers that will come into force on January 1 if there's no deal would prolong the United Kingdom's recovery from the coronavirus recession by almost a year, the watchdog said. Unemployment would be an additional percentage point higher, it added. Johnson has little time left to secure a new trade deal with the European Union, but the United Kingdom faces a dire economic situation even if an agreement materializes.

People walk past an information board following the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Bolton, Britain, September 23, 2020. Between May 28 and Nov. 4, tracers reached and obtained details of contacts from just two-thirds of the 767,074 people who tested positive for COVID-19. Reuters analysed 730,000 COVID-19 cases and found it took on average three days to publish the results to a national dashboard. According to government agency Public Health England, the full details of cases are passed to contact tracers a few hours before results are published to the dashboard.

The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine candidate is 70% effective, on average, according to a press release published on Monday. Dr. Andrew Pollard, director of the Oxford Vaccine Group, said it could be because the different doses "prime" the immune system for the second dose differently. The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine candidate is given to people as two doses, at least one month apart. Britain's William, Duke of Cambridge, visits the Oxford Vaccine Group's facility at the Churchill Hospital, in Oxford.
