Earlier this year, finance minister Mukherjee described Britain’s eight year, 1.6 billion pounds programme as ‘a peanut’. This peanut is hard to for India to swallow and the UK is working on plans to wind down aid from the International Development Agency. Some of the 650 million pounds due to be spent over the next thirty months will be saved as Britain replaces aid with trade.  It is widely thought that the UK government should not be providing millions in aid to booming countries such as Brazil, India and China.
