- working for peace and protecting the UK and its citizens from

countries that wish to do us harm by:

a) Committing to the principle of collective self-defence as laid

out in the North Atlantic Treaty and spending 2% of GDP on

defence in line with NATO recommendations.

b) Legislating to ensure there is a parliamentary vote before

engaging in military action, whilst preserving the ability to

engage in action in emergencies or under treaty obligation

without being forced to recall parliament.

c) Focusing on the diplomatic priorities of the UN's

Responsibility to Protect doctrine and establishing new

tests to ensure UK action taken under doctrine has regional

support, a decent prospect of defined success, and a sound

legal or humanitarian case.

d) Promoting an international treaty on the principles and limits

of the use of technology in modern warfare.

4. Develop trade, aid, and investment to ensure that economic

development leaves nobody behind, specifically by:

a) Remaining firmly committed to spending 0.7% of GNI on aid.

b) Prioritising development that both helps the poorest and

ties in with our strategic international objectives on gender

equality, climate change and the environment, human rights,

inequality, and technology.

c) Working through international bodies for better regulation

ensure they do not worsen inequalities or human rights, or

undermine sustainability.

d) Remaining within the Single Market and Customs Union to

ensure the best trading arrangements for the UK, regardless

of whether or not the UK remains in the EU.

e) Urgently reviewing the national security implications of

exposing critical national infrastructure to foreign ownership.

f) Tackling international tax avoidance and corruption by

ensuring the UK and British Overseas Territories have

publicly-accessible registers of beneficial ownership of

companies registered in their jurisdictions.

5. More effectively harness British influence and soft power,
