DFID’s response to a story in The Sun on spending UK aid on building roads, railways and other infrastructure in developing countries

The Sun’s online headline completely misrepresents the findings of the ICAI report, focussing as it does exclusively on a very narrow area of DFID’s work in this field, namely potholes. The main thrust of DFID’s work in this area centres around improving transport services and infrastructure in developing countries.
