John Healey responds to news that consultation on visa fees for Commonwealth and Nepalese service personnel launching in “early May”

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary, responding to the news that the Government intends to launch a consultation in “early May” on visa fees for Commonwealth and Nepalese service personnel, said:

“This is a first step in righting a long-running wrong, with Commonwealth veterans forced to pay twice for their citizenship.

“The consultation is welcome but it is taking too long for ministers to turn talk into action.”
