The number of Bulgarians and Romanians employed in Britain in the first three months of this year fell by 4,000 compared to the end of 2013.
A total of 140,000 Romanians and Bulgarians were employed in the UK between January and March after access restrictions to the labour market for the two countries were lifted, which is 4,000 less than in the the last three months of 2013.
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.
