What law does your department use to have access to public money

The request was refused by Department for International Development.

Dear Department for International Development,

I am looking to see what law is being used for your department to be getting public money to use Outside the UK. Most people are annoyed that the Troys have wasted public money on projects that put British Citizens in a worst state.

For example your department is happy to provide millions of tax payers money on a "Spice Girls" project for a 3rd World. Without any benefit to citizens.

Yours faithfully,

Joe Jordan

Department for International Development

Joe that is not the kind of question you should be asking FOI. They a government department and the decisions are for parliament and the government.

@Abdul Hai - it is a valid FoI request. As a Citizen that pays into the system I am legally entitled to know why this current Government and it's past Governments believe that Citizens should have to go without (NHS is failing), for the Government to redirect our resources to overseas without lawful reasoning, putting Citizens in danger (such as not having enough money for Cancer treatment).

If some Citizens are happy with the current setup of Billions of pounds being wasted in these "causes" then they should directly donate to it rather then expecting the rest of us to foot the bill for it.
