Migration Watch UK Press Comment on Romanian and Bulgarian Labour Migration

August 13, 2014

Commenting on the figures released in today’s Labour Force Survey, Sir Andrew Green, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:

"A 13,000 increase in the number of Romanian and Bulgarian workers compared to the same quarter last year is significant, especially as transitional controls were still in place for the first half of the year. Once dependants are factored in it is likely that the increase in population over the whole year 2014 will be between 30,000 and 70,000 as we predicted.  Our central estimate of 50,000 remains a very likely outcome."
