Leo said: I am absolutely delighted at the Ministry of Defence’s announcement today that veterans who joined the Brigade of Gurkhas before 2007 will benefit from a £15m (2.2bn Nepali Rupees) increase in the Gurkha Pension Scheme.
Leo said: "I was honoured yesterday to open the new superb Rushmoor Superstore on Birchett Road, Aldershot. I am so pleased when new independent businesses like this open in our community, and hope local people will support it. I took the opportunity to stock up on Basmati!"
Leo said: "I’m delighted to see Rushmoor Borough Council is ‘taking care of business’ (front page of Aldershot and Farnborough News & Mail, 27th February 2019) by allocating £805,000 of rate relief to small businesses across Aldershot and Farnborough over the next two years.
Leo said: "A moving ceremony today to remember the seven people - five innocent cleaning ladies, a gardener and an Army Chaplain - murdered by IRA terrorists on the Aldershot Garrison on this day in 1972.
Leo said: "Good decision by Home Secretary Sajid Javid on stripping the so-called Jihadi bride of British citizenship. Those who support or join terrorist groups abroad should know the UK is not a soft touch. Here’s my question at PMQs today."
