Overseas development

I heard a report yesterday that Priti Patel, the Secretary of State for International development has the view that our international aid budget should be used to encourage trade with the UK in a post brexit world.

 

This strikes me as a truly reprehensible use of this budget. Surly overseas aid should be used to help people after natural disasters, to build their economy, to improve their infrastructure not to bribe them into trading with us?
