CONSERVATIVE Councillor & Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (PPC) Liam Marshall-Ascough has thrown cold water on the potential creation of a food-bank, claiming he doesn't believe anyone in Crawley is suffering as a result of hunger citing that the towns restaurants are usually fully booked at the weekend, TBG can reveal.

Labour has attacked the councillor saying that the Conservatives are ignoring important findings of a council panel, which was set up to help people with financial troubles. Its findings have apparently "not been acted on", according to reports

Michael Jones, a Labour borough councillor thinks that the idea of housing a food bank at Crawley's Town Hall should be looked into.

Councillor Liam Marsall-Ascough, who is on the Conservative Party's approved parliamentary candidates' list for 2015, told Crawley News - "I disagree that people are in desperate need in terms of food banks. People aren’t in poverty in terms of going without food. You try booking a restaurant in Crawley on a Friday or Saturday night. You can’t do it."
