    "It is a great pleasure to be able to attend the British Kebab Awards ceremony tonight. I first started to sample the wide variety of kebabs when I travelled round Turkey as a student in the 1970s. But that variety is now available in our own country and it is a pleasure to be here this evening to celebrate the best that our restaurateurs can offer."

The UK’s food and drink sector makes an important contribution to the British economy, with over 1.4 million working in the catering sector alone. The Kebab has an ever growing role in British social life and its popularity as a food is owed in no small part to the talented restaurants and chefs who are being nominated for awards this year.

    "I think the British Kebab Awards are a fantastic way of recognising the contribution the kebab industry makes to every local community. The kebab industry contributes millions to the British economy every year and employs thousands of people across the country. Kebabs are a triumph of British multiculturalism and it is now almost impossible to find a high street in my constituency or elsewhere where the kebab aren’t present! It is great to see the industry thriving and I hope that it continues to do so – providing jobs, food and a vital injection to UK plc."
