Congratulations to all those nominated to be honoured in this year’s 9th British Kebab Awards. Running a really good kebab restaurant is a tough job. But it makes a great contribution to the community. That is true in the community I represent, and in communities all over the country. Thanks to the organisers for giving us this opportunity to celebrate the work of this fast growing industry, now worth almost £3 billion per year, and the achievements of so many who work in it.
