Dear Mark

I'm delighted to be able to say that the Gurkha Justice Campaign now has
over 55,000 signatures - thank you so much.

I've recorded a special video message for all the supporters of the
Gurkha Justice Campaign which you can see
at and you can find more
information at our newly updated web site

Please do make sure all your family, friends, colleagues know about the
petition at - I REALLY want to get more
signatures, and need your help. If everyone getting this email could
encourage just 20 friends to sign, we'd beat our target immediately.

I was delighted to be in Westminster on Monday at the third reading of
Lord Lee of Trafford's Immigration (Discharged Gurkhas) Bill in the
House of Lords (). The bill was unopposed in
the Lords, and now goes to the House of Commons - if there is enough
time in this session. Although it's apparently quite rare for a Private
Members Bill to get accepted by the Government, I hope they will do so
in this case - it simply does everything we want. We just need to
convince the Government to agree.

After the third reading debate was over, I went to a meeting with some
real ex-Gurkha heroes including Honorary Lieutenant Tul Bahadur Pun VC
who served as a Chindit in Burma with my father. At the meeting, it was
fantastic to receive pledges of support from lots of MPs, peers and
campaigners from all parties (and crossbenchers) to support Lord Lee's
Bill.

Many people have asked for a petition form they can give to family and
friends - this can be downloaded
from or
they can sign up on the site directly.

With warmest good wishes,

Joanna


PS. As you can see in the video, I've made good use of my Gurkha Justice
t-shirt this week - a really simple way to show my support for the
campaign and get the web site address out quickly. So many people have
asked where they can get one that we've set up an online shop - so you
can buy a Gurkha Justice t-shirt or sweatshirt and help spread the word
with pride too.

You can buy from - every item sold
from this online shop will make the campaign a small profit which will
be used to further promote the cause.


In case you missed the link to the video:

I got my reply from Joanna Lumley this morning plus the form for people to sign so that will be doing the rounds with me for the next couple of days before it is returned.

Well done Brian, the more signatures we can get the better!
