Brake Backs British Bangladeshi Business

July 22, 2009 2:27 PM

Tom Brake has presented an Early Day Motion to Parliament, supporting the British Bangladeshi catering industry.

The EDM states:

"That this House celebrates the diversity of British foods; acknowledges Bangladeshi cuisine to be one of Britain's best known and loved culinary experiences; notes that the British Bangladeshi food industry provides jobs for around 100,000 people; commends the Federation of Bangladeshi Caterers UK for their pioneering work in giving a voice to the sector; and calls on the government to recognise and support British Bangladeshi caterers in the current economic climate."

Tom commented:

"So many local people are part of the industry: whether it's those who supply produce, people who work in restaurants, takeaways and markets or simply those who are passionate about the unique and delicious joy of eating Bangladeshi food.

"There is immense pressure on businesses at the moment, and I'm taking action here as part of the work I'm putting in to protect local jobs and the vital income they provide to residents."

The EDM has already begun to gather signatures.

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
