Notes to editors
Prime Minister question time Wed 13th March
Ed Miliband criticised the Prime Minister for making it up as he went along and said the country was paying the price.
Cameron said Miliband did not have a single positive suggestion about getting on top of the deficit.
He drew attention to a copy of Miliband’s diary which Cameron said had a list of the dinners that he had held to raise money from trade unions including the GMB, Usdaw, Aslef, TSSA and Ucatt, Mr Cameron said: "Dinosaur after dinosaur, dinner after dinner. They pay the money, they get the policies, but the country will end up paying the price."
