Guernsey freezes overseas aid cash

Guernsey's government has decided the amount it gives in overseas aid will not increase on last year.

The Policy Council said it was unable to recommend a budget increase in the light of the existing economic and fiscal climate.

More than £2.5m was given to 80 projects last year including £140,000 to four international disasters.

This was less than a third of the money given by Jersey, which has increased its contribution this year.
