Wondering what is causing small holes in dwarf lemon tree leaves.

I have just repotted two trees (Yates Potting Mix with Dynamic Lifter), one a Meyer dwarf and the other we were given so have no idea which variety. The Meyer has small holes appearing on the leaves, the other tree has the same but also cream coloured marks. Are you able to identify what is causing this and advise how to control please?

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

Looks like chewing insects such as caterpillars or snail and snugs could be the culprit. 
To control caterpillars, try ‘Yates Nature's Way Caterpillar Killer - Dipel’. This product controls a wide range of leaf eating caterpillars and is safe to beneficial insects, birds and animals. Approved for use in organic gardening.
For snail and slugs, try 'Yates Blitzem Snail & Slug Pellets', safe to use in vegetable and garden beds.
Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
