Invite poor families for dinner, Mr Cameron
A BRISTOL MP has challenged David Cameron to invite hard-up families to dinner at Downing Street.
Kerry McCarthy invoked the recent row over dinners at Number 10 for millionaire donors to the Conservative Party in Parliament yesterday.
The Labour MP for Bristol East is campaigning on food prices and is currently trying to change the law to force supermarkets to re-use their surplus produce.
Speaking at Prime Minister's Questions, she said: "While the Prime Minister is entertaining millionaire donors at cosy kitchen parties at his Downing Street flat, thousands of ordinary people are queuing at food banks because they can't afford to feed their families."

She asked Mr Cameron what people affected by government cuts and rising food prices had to do to get a "quiet word in his ear".
Ms McCarthy added: "Is there any chance he could invite some of them round for supper?"
Mr Cameron replied by defending the government's tax and spending policies, pointing to increases in child tax credits for poor families and the raising of the personal tax threshold.
