David Cameron: Happy New Year to all Tamil and Sinhalese

Below: A Message from the Prime Minister to all who celebrate Puthandu.

“I would like to send my best wishes to all Tamil communities in Britain and around the world celebrating Puthandu today. It’s a time when millions of people will be coming together with families, friends and neighbours to celebrate their New Year.

“But it is also a time to remember the fantastic contribution Tamil and Sinhalese communities make to Britain. We see it around us, every single day – in our schools and our hospitals, in the arts and businesses – you play an incredibly important and positive role.

“I’m sure many people celebrating today will be thinking of loved ones overseas.

“I hope that this New Year will bring communities closer together in helping to heal the wounds of the past.

“To everyone celebrating Puthandu I wish you a very happy and prosperous New Year.”
