Cameron, who will leave for New Delhi the same evening, will be accompanied by a large business delegation, including chief executives of leading British business houses, vice-chancellors of reputed universities, dignitaries and senior officials from 10, Downing Street, among others.

“In Mumbai, Cameron's programme includes visits to Hindustan Unilever headquarters in the morning, a luncheon meeting with business leaders at the Taj Palace Hotel, a visit to St Xaviers School, and laying a wreath at the Police Memorial, among other engagements,” a MEA statement said.

Cameron is also expected to attend a private function being hosted by a large conglomerate before leaving for the national capital, according to industry sources.
