Raj of Inida

Wayne David has met with the staff from the Raj of India Restaurant in Caerphilly, after nominating them for the Tiffin Cup award.

The Tiffin Cup is an annual competition which has been running since 2006. It is organised by the Tiffin Club, which is a group of cross-party Members of Parliament who love curry! 

MPs can nominate a South Asian restaurant from their constituency that they have been impressed with. From these nominations 10 top restaurants are shortlisted for the regional final. These entrants will then be invited to cook at the Bellamy’s Restaurant in Westminster, where a selection of parliamentarians and celebrities will pick a winner. 

This competition aims to raise the profile of South Asian food, its high quality and diversity. It also aims to raise money for charities, with this year’s proceeds going to WaterAid and World Vision. 

Wayne David said, “I am very pleased to have nominated the Raj of India. Their food is superb and they definitely deserve the recognition that this competition will give them. My fiancée and I regularly eat here and I would certainly recommend it! I really believe the quality of their food could propel them to win this event”.

Moynul Islam, the manager if the Raj of India said that it “means the world to us” to be nominated.

Caerphilly Mountain

Caerphilly’s Labour Assembly candidate, Hefin David, and the constituency’s Labour Member of Parliament, Wayne David, have jointly submitted a formal request to ‘suspend’ the Caerphilly County Borough Local Development Plan.

In a joint submission to the Borough Council, Hefin David and Wayne David state:

“We… request that the review of the Caerphilly LDP be suspended until such time as a Strategic Development Plan (SDP) for South East Wales can be established. Given the complexity of the objections… it is wise to wait until an SDP can investigate whether these developments are necessary to meet housing demand in the context of a much wider strategic area. It is also vital that residents’ voices are heard in the development of an SDP.”

 Hefin David said, “We are currently caught between two systems- the old LDPs and the new, much wider strategic plans. If I am elected as Assembly Member for Caerphilly, I will make it my mission to get the South East Wales local authorities to produce a strategic plan. In the meantime, I call for this LDP to be suspended, which is why I voted against it in the first place. I will be asking the Welsh Minister for Natural Resources to consider this objection too.”

 Wayne David commented, “Hefin is right in his call for a regional approach towards planning. Hefin David and I have submitted to the Council a detailed paper of 2,500 words setting-out our opposition to the development at Gwern-y-Domen, Plasnewydd Farm, Nant y Calch Farm and the proposed bypass.

 “Importantly, we have been joined by Julie Morgan, the Labour AM for Cardiff North. Julie has argued strongly that the north of Cardiff would suffer an unacceptable increase in the level of traffic if the Caerphilly developments went ahead.”

 Mr David added that he was pleased that the submission had the full support of Jeff Cuthbert, the outgoing AM for Caerphilly. Jeff Cuthbert said, “The new Planning for Wales Act should make it more likely that a sustainable SDP can be developed for South East Wales. When you take into account also the planned Metro then it makes sense to think far more broadly about the housing and other infrastructure needs of the wider area.”
