Saj backs Commonwealth soldiers serving in the British armed forces

Sajid says that soldiers from Commonwealth countries who join our armed forces should be allowed to bring their families to Britain.

Sajid says that soldiers from Commonwealth countries who join our armed forces should be allowed to bring their families to Britain.

The Daily Mail reports that under current rules, such service personnel often struggle to bring their wives and children into the country as they don’t meet minimum income requirements. 

But if he becomes Prime Minister, Sajid wants to scrap the rules to make it easier for soldiers’ families to join them here.

Sajid also wants to abolish hefty fees of over £2,000 per person which Commonwealth soldiers must pay to settle here.

Sajid said:

As we celebrate the incredible heroism of those who stormed the beaches of northern France, it’s only right that we give those serving today the ability to build their lives in the country they serve so well.
