"I am delighted to support this year’s British Kebab Awards. The British Kebab industry makes an important contribution to our culture and our economy, employing thousands of people across this country. I send my very best wishes to all those at this year’s 2018 award ceremony, as well as my congratulations to the winners. I hope the year ahead will be another successful one."
"Many, many congratulations to the Centre for Turkey Studies for once again organising the British Kebab Awards. It is an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and culinary skills of so many Turkish people. My constituency is no exception to the rule that Turkish people work extremely hard, play a full part in the lives of our towns and provide us with wonderful food. I send my best wishes for an enjoyable and successful evening."
