David Cameron and the Polish prime minister have agreed to hold further discussions on the impact of EU free movement on child benefit payments.
The Prime Minister called Donald Tusk this afternoon "to discuss co-operation on a range of bilateral and EU issues", Downing Street said:
The Prime Minister made clear his long-standing view, reiterated in recent days, that the lack of transitional controls for new EU member states in 2004 was the wrong approach and had put pressure on local communities; and that we need to address the impact on countries’ benefits systems, including for example paying child benefit to families living abroad.
