Commenting, Sir Andrew Green, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:
"Quarterly statistics fluctuate but these figures show an increase of 28,000 Romanians and Bulgarians in employment compared to the same period last year. Most of this has occurred when transitional controls were still in place making it likely that there will be an increase in employment over the coming year now that controls have ended. This is consistent with our estimate of a 50,000 population increase from Romania and Bulgaria in each of the next five years."
