We’re waiting for a new Petitions Committee

Petitions had to stop because of the recent general election. Once a new Petitions Committee is set up by the House of Commons, petitions will start again.

Closed petition Create fast-track citizenship route for soldiers from commonwealth & families

People from the commonwealth serving in the British army, both men and women alike, and their families supporting them must fill many requirements in order to achieve UK citizenship. We think this should change.

More details

We believe the UK government should implement a law and or programme that allows soldiers from commonwealth countries, serving with the British army, the right to fast track citizenship for them and their families should they choose to apply. We think this would not only boost the ties between our communities but also allow our commonwealth soldiers to be seen as equals and given the respect and credit they deserve, for after all they do the same job.
