The speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, has ruled that a vote on an amendment to scrap proposed cuts to the foreign aid budget will not be heard.

It was intended to make the government commit to reinstating the 0.7% target from next year - from the funding for this agency if it is not met through alternative means.
