Govt considering 'options' on immigration

Govt considering 'options' on immigration

The Government is considering its "options" for curbing immigration from Bulgaria and Romania, including working with other EU states, Number 10 has said.

"We are in the process of considering what we may be able to do, clearly there is a European legal framework within which we have to operate clearly there may be some areas where we want to cooperate with other member states," the Prime  Minister's spokesman said

Speaking after a report suggested ministers might launch a negative ad campaign in Romania and Bulgaria to deter potential migrants, he said ministers would look carefully at the impact of immigration from the two countries.

"The Prime Minister's view is that its an important debate and the right thing to do is consider what options are available," the spokesman said.

"There is work being done by NIESR [National Institute of Economic and Social Research] to assess the impact, there is a process ongoing within government to look at what options may be available and considering those and its a very important aspect of the immigration agenda."
