EU Immigration Benefits UK?
From the Financial Times:
‘UK withholds report on EU Immigration. David Cameron shelved a government report on EU migration, after Theresa May, home secretary, failed to provide evidence to support her case for imposing tighter curbs on immigrants.
Ms May, whose department was responsible for drafting the report, said last month there was “abuse of free movement” rules and that some migrants were attracted by “access to benefits” – although she has struggled to prove her contention that limiting EU migration would be good for Britain….
….One official said: “They can’t bring themselves to publish the report before the European elections because they would have to admit that freedom of movement is a good thing.”…..’
In addition to the consequences of any reciprocal restrictions applied to the millions of British in the EU, both formally and informally resident.
