Matt Rodda for Reading East

Standing up for Reading

Give our Ghurkas a decent Pension

Reading’s Gurkha soldiers who retired before 1997 receive a pension which can be as little as a third of the size of that of British and Commonwealth troops who served in the British Army. I’m calling for a fair deal for our Gurkha veterans and I am for pressing the Shadow Defence team and the All Party Gurkha Welfare Group for a change in the army pension rules.

I also support the Labour Friends of the Forces Group. The link to the Home of the Labour Forces Community is below.
