Minister of State for Africa

The current minister of state for Africa is Harriet Baldwin MP. The minister of state for Africa should be a British person with African heritage.

The Tory government have merged two separate roles into one with the minister of state for Africa. A labour government should reinstate the two separate offices of a minister of state for Africa focusing on diplomacy in the foreign office and a minister of state for Africa focusing on international development in the department of international development. Combining the two is a cost-cutting exercise which fails to give attention to the diplomatic need to reach out to African countries and the need to manage the UK's contribution to international development.

The International Policy Commission develops Labour’s international policy. It is responsible for foreign policy, international development, defence and Britain’s future relationship with Europe.
