The two former leaders argued that any move to cut spending on aid would undermine Britain’s position when it hosts the G7 summit in 2021. The decision comes as the country embarks on a new future outside the European Union. Blair, a Labour prime minister from 1997 to 2007 who introduced the 0.7% target, said the spending had tackled disease, boosted education and helped to increase living standards across large swathes of Africa.
