News & Views Striking the right balance


Edinburgh’s Mosque Kitchen helped warm up striking workers with a curry after a protest march in the city on November 30 against public sector pension plans. The restaurant was


approached by the Unison union and delivered chicken curry, vegetable curry and rice to the cold and hungry strikers.


An estimated 7500 people marched down the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. They then rallied in front of the Scottish Parliament to protest against cuts in pensions.


French queue up for M&S masala


M&S has returned to Paris after a ten year absence, opening a new store on the Champs Elysee. There were queues to get into the new shop this December with its renowned ready- made chicken tikka masala proving especially popular.


M&S closed its 18 stores in France in 2001 to focus on rebuilding its then struggling UK business. Whereas previously the company’s French stores stocked the entire M&S range, this time it will concentrate on food and women’s clothing.

Wolverhampton-based Mother India, which spe- cialises in traditional Punjabi food, has seen prof- its increase after extending the dining area using a £70,000 loan from Lloyds TSB Commercial. The owner Amerjit Ram completed the expansion proj- ect last summer to meet growing demand, more than doubling seating capacity from capacity from 40 to 90. This has allowed Mother India to accom- modate diners even at peak times, whereas before they sometimes had to turn business away.


According to Bob Taylor, relationship manager at Lloyds TSB Commercial, “The business has seen strong growth since opening the exten- sion. It can now serve all customers that come in looking for a tasty meal, not to mention the extra revenue generated through lunchtime sales, and I am pleased that Lloyds TSB Commercial was able to facilitate this growth.”
