Migration Watch UK press release on EU court ruling

September 15, 2015

Commenting on today’s court judgement, Alp Mehmet, Vice-Chairman of Migration Watch UK said:

The problem is not “benefit tourism”.  We do not believe that the bulk of EU workers are coming for the benefits.  Our concern is that much higher wages in the UK than in Eastern Europe, topped up for married workers by in-work benefits, will continue to attract large numbers of EU migrants.
