Figures show rise in labour migration from crisis-hit eurozone nations

Share

There have been increases of up to 50% in migration to Britain from Greece, Spain, Italy and Portugal, according to official figures from the Department for Work and Pensions.

The new data shows little evidence, however, of any surge in Romanians or Bulgarians arriving in advance of the end-of-year deadline to lift restrictions on them working in Britain.

In fact, the figures on new national insurance registrations by overseas workers show a fall in the number of Romanians (down 22% year on year to 17,820) and Bulgarians (down 17% to 10,400) coming to work in Britain in 2012/13.
