Cost of living: Midlothian curry king Habibur Khan warns rising costs could lead to restaurant closures.
Habibur Khan is the managing partner of the multi award-winning Radhuni restaurant in Loanhead. He has said several thousand jobs could be lost unless there was urgent action to help restaurants during this cost of living crisis. He said: “In the current climate many businesses simply won’t survive. If there’s no urgent fix by the end of the year, 30 per cent of restaurants in Britain may have shut their doors. Staff will lose their jobs and put even more pressure on already stretched government welfare budgets.”
