Mr Kelvin Thomson asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs, in writing on, 13 May 2015:

Will she consider adopting the approach by the former Government of doubling aid funding for family planning services in developing countries to $50 million a year by 2016, as part of efforts to support a global campaign to prevent unwanted pregnancies and save 200,000 lives; if not, what level of funding is allocated to family planning in the 2015-16 foreign aid budget.


Ms Julie Bishop: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Aid allocations are determined in consultation with partner governments.
