'Somali immigrants' cause pub closures, says minister
Pubs are closing as a result of Somali immigrants arriving in Britain, a Government minister has said.
Stephen Williams, the Liberal Democrat communities minister, told the House of Commons that new waves of immigration replacing the "white working class" had led to the pub trade evaporating in some parts of the country.
His comments came as the Government unveiled new plans to protect pubs which are valuable to local communities.
