Commenting on the ONS’s Labour market statistics, Sir Andrew
Green, Chairman of Migration Watch UK said:
“This increase of just over a third in Romanian and Bulgarian
workers in the UK over the past year is a sharp increase on the previous trend.
It suggests that still larger numbers will arrive next year when our labour
market is fully open to them. This is consistent with our central estimate that
net migration from Romania and Bulgaria will run at about 50,000 a year for the
next five years”
Notes: This relates to the ONS Labour Market Statistics, Employment
Levels and rates by country of birth and nationality.
