MigrationWatch warns on new immigrants

MigrationWatch warns on new immigrants

Fifty thousand people a year will come to the UK when travel restrictions on Bulgaria and Romania are lifted, an anti-immigration group has estimated.

MigrationWatch said there would be "significant" consequences for jobs and housing from the new rules, while former Home Secretary David Blunkett has said EU migrants should be barred from claiming benefit for children who live overseas.

Talking on the Today programme, MigrationWatch's chairman, Sir Andrew Green, said that "access to the benefits system in Britain is much easier than in most other European countries."

"That has to be tackled otherwise these numbers will be very large", he warned.
