Christian Aid has warmly welcomed Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s new political appointments, saying that the changes were a good sign of his commitment to the world’s poor.
In particular, Christian Aid praised the appointment of Douglas Alexander to the Department of International Development and of Hilary Benn to the Environment Department.
Sally Golding, Christian Aid’s chief political advisor, said the Cabinet appointments augured well for the poor, the environment and for foreign policy.
“Christian Aid feels that the new Cabinet has the potential to push forward on tackling world poverty and on positively challenging the international community to deal with issues such as the environment and international humanitarian crises in Darfur, the Middle East and elsewhere,” she concluded.
