Prime Minister Theresa May has ruled out cuts to the UK foreign aid budget if she wins the general election, the BBC reported.

She said the government's commitment to spending 0.7% of national income on foreign aid "will remain".

But at an election event in her constituency, she stressed the need to ensure the money is spent "in the most effective way".

It follows speculation she was ready to drop the commitment from the Conservative election manifesto.

The 0.7% commitment was adopted by David Cameron when he became prime minister in 2010 and later enshrined in law.
