British Tamil Conservatives New Year Message

I would like to extend my warmest greetings to everyone celebrating the Tamil New Year. I would also like to acknowledge the significant contribution the Tamil diaspora makes to many aspects of British society. That contribution is built upon enterprise, community, family and social responsibility – values the Conservative Party also holds dear.

So as you gather with your families and friends to celebrate this important festival, I would like to send you and your families my very best wishes for the New Year.

David Cameron
