The Government has come under fire for giving millions of pounds in aid to China, despite the Communist superpower being able to afford an ambitious space programme.
The UK gave Beijing a whopping £27.4 million in aid last year, according to figures seen by the Daily Mail newspaper.
Tory MP Peter Bone has called on International Development Secretary Justine Greening to explain why the UK is “wasting” money on China, the world’s second largest economy only after the United States, according to the World Bank.
