Business Secretary Vince Cable has said new figures on the numbers of Bulgarians and Romanians working in the UK show that claims of a new wave of immigration into Britain are unfounded.
The number of Bulgarians and Romanians employed in Britain since restrictions were lifted at the end of 2013 has fallen by 4,000 to 140,000.
But numbers rose by 28,000 when compared to the first three months of 2013, when 112,000 Bulgarians and Romanians were employed in Britain.
