Home Affairs Select Committee chairman Keith Vaz is urging the Government to conduct a "full study" into the impact of the lifting of the access restrictions between the UK and Bulgaria and Romania. He said:
Though this report is helpful, what the Government needs to do is to commission a full study into the impact of the raising of transitional arrangements placed on Romanian and Bulgarian citizens.
This report contains no estimates of expected arrivals, yet when we deal with immigration it is essential we have the facts and figures.
It would be helpful if Theresa May visited Romania and Bulgaria to gauge the reasons why their citizens would chose to migrate to the UK.
The way we handle this issue will be fundamental in shaping our relationship with the EU, and with future enlargement applicants such as Turkey.
