Britain's aid minister said on Monday the "grotesque" sex abuse scandal that has rocked the aid sector was a "wake up call" for agencies to get their houses in order, and warned the government would not fund those that failed to do so.An exclusive survey by the Thomson Reuters Foundation last week found more than 120 staff from leading global charities were fired or lost their jobs in 2017 over sexual misconduct.The ICRC said 23 staff members had left since 2015 over sexual misconduct, while ActionAid said it had recorded 22 such cases in the last five years with six resulting in dismissals.Children's aid charity Plan recorded six cases of sex abuse and child exploitation by staff and associates between July 2016 and June 2017, with action taken in all cases.
