UK Prime Minister Promises Flexibility for Asian Curry Chefs

The UK’s Prime Minister, Mr David Cameron attending the British Curry Awards on November 26th of this year where he announced that there will be changes and flexibility coming in to play with the Skilled Visa’s into the country to allow more Asian Chefs to enter as Skilled Workers. Curry was first seen on our shores in the 1950-60’s when mass migrants from India, Pakistan and other Asian countries came to the UK as invited to help repair the country after the devastation of the second world war, the country was in ruins and we simply did not have the manpower left to rectify this. Asian migrants came in their droves and with them they bought the now English favourite - Curry! The meal eaten most often and is most popular is the Chicken Tikka Masala in the UK, surprisingly not the roast beef and yorkshire puddings or full English Breakfast it once was. 

David Cameron stated that Curry is huge business in Britain, establishments which are either curry restaurants or curry takeaways employ more than 80,000 and the sector is worth an incredible £3.6 billion each year! He went on to make promises at the British Curry Awards, which were held at the Battersea Evolution Centre, that continuing to grant access to asian curry chefs that are in need will increase and that the UK authorities will endeavour to help to train the next generation of homegrown chefs. 

The UK has seen a worrying shortage of Asian curry chefs with those today being direct descendants from the Asian Migrants of the 20th century who possibly saw the long hours and little pay their ancestors got and decided on a different career root. Curry restaurants were once the only type of restaurant that the ordinary, average wage earner could attend affordably but not this is not the case. Curry restaurants reside in many affluent areas keeping up with the English, French and Greek restaurants by having Prestigious Michelin Stars and fine wines on offer at hundreds of pounds a bottle. Since the UK has cracked down on immigration this has led to a shortage of trained chefs coming here to work from countries such as Pakistan, India, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka. February 2012 saw a change to the Tier 2 (which is a general skilled worker) visa which made it near on impossible for asian chefs to come to work in Britain.
