Foreign aid: This is how much Britain forked out last year - including £463m to Pakistan

BRITAIN gifted Pakistan £463million in foreign aid last year, equal to £1.2 million a day, new figures show.

The country is now the biggest recipient of UK handouts despite having its own space and nuclear weapons programmes.

Official documents also reveal Syria received £352 million, Ethiopia got £334 million, Nigeria was given £230 million and Afghanistan £235 million in 2016.

The spending scandals are revealed just days after Chancellor Philip Hammond made no moves to adjust Britain’s Official Development Assistance [ODA] commitment in his Budget.

It means the UK will continue to spend 0.7 per cent of its income on foreign aid, despite cash-starved frontline services like the NHS begging for more money.
