Student or Learner
I was watching an interview on BBC world news where a host asks an interviewee, "Do you think that David Cameroon ought to be doing a better job of putting Falk lander's case? " The interviewee replies, " It will be nice if he did". I was just wanted to know if the interviewee uses the correct tense. Shouldn't he have said , "It will be nice if he does"?

"It'd be nice if he did" is absolutely fine.
I also wonder if the interviewer wasn't a native speaker, or if there is simply a word missing from your text. The question should read "Do you think that David Cameron ought to be doing a better job of putting the Falklanders' case?"
