Gurkha ex-soldiers' citizenship

Dave Simpson of City of Chester Liberal Democrats asks:

"Please sign this petition.

"The current situation is a joke - the Gurkhas (who are some of our best, most loyal and bravest soldiers) are being turned away from British Citizenship.

"It's a disgrace and I feel quite strongly about it, having worked with some superb Officers whilst
with P&O.

"If you too feel strongly, please add your signature to this official Number 10 petition."

There is news of a high court verdict in favour of five Gurkha veterans seeking UK citizenship, even though they had retired before the Home Office's cut-off year of 1997.

This is a test case.
