This house cares not one jot about world hunger

No, that is not the text of a motion before parliament, to be honest. 

However, Early Day Motion 408, on World Hunger, tabled by John Mann, has attracted only 38 MPs by 9 February 2010 and only one of those is a Conservative signatory, Peter Bottomley.

The motion points out that although dealing with hunger is one of the Millennium Development Goals recent progress has been absent and in fact things have been getting worse.
