EARLY DAY MOTION 687 - WORLD TOILET DAY 2015

I have signed Early Day Motion 687 on World Toilet Day 2015. 

That this House welcomes World Toilet Day 2015 which falls on 19 November; is concerned that 2.5 billion people are without access to basic sanitation and that 700 million people are without access to safe water globally; recognises the centrality of water, sanitation and hygiene to progress on other key development areas such as health, education and nutrition; acknowledges that two per cent of UK bilateral aid budget is spent on water, sanitation and hygiene; notes that independent polling from May 2015 shows that both MPs and the general public thinks that this amount is and should be far higher; further welcomes that the Government has signed the new global framework including Goal 6 on universal access to water and sanitation by 2030; and calls on the Government to fulfil this commitment by prioritising water, sanitation and hygiene.
