Sir Lindsay Hoyle, Speaker of the House of Commons, said: ‘On almost every high street across the UK, you can find a hard-working kebab business serving late into the night, and in doing so, contributing almost £3bn each year to the UK economy.
‘Kebabs are not just tasty – my favourites being chargrilled chicken or lamb shish – they also can be one of the healthier late-night snacks you can eat.
‘So, I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all those small businesses, which are largely run by families, who bring us kebabs from many different communities, including Kurdish, Turkish, Greek and Lebanese.’
