The Democratic Unionist Party has helped to ensure the passage of a motion in the House of Commons calling upon the government to abandon its plans surrounding UK residency rights for former and serving members of the Gurkha Regiment. The DUP was joined by members of the Tory Party, the Liberal Democrats and the Labour Party in voting for a parliamentary motion demanding the government abandon their plans on this issue.
For the record record, the 6 DUP MPs who voted (Iris Robinson, David Simpson and Ian Paisley couldn’t make it apparently) were also joined by members of the Ulster Unionist Party, Plaid Cymru, the SNP and the SDLP in voting for this parliamentary motion.
Would it really have hurt that much to include that extra bit of information in the press-release? A very childish and petty omission.
