David Cameron 'hosted dinners for millionaire donors in Downing Street flat'
Christopher Hope, and Mark Hughes
Mr Cameron found himself caught in a cash-for-access row after Peter Cruddas, the Conservative Party’s co-treasurer, was recorded in secret claiming that donors were treated to exclusive dinners in Mr Cameron's flat above No 10 Downing Street and Chequers, the Prime Minister’s official country residence.
Senior party sources admitted that Mr Cameron had held talks in his flat with two large donors in the past year, although the source said it was “exceptionally unusual”. Michael Spencer, a former Tory treasurer, was one of the guests.
A senior aide to the Prime Minister denied the party was “selling” access to Mr Cameron’s flat, and insisted no public money was used at the “handful” of private dinners since the Coalition took office.
