Almost two-thirds of Britons people believe immigrants from within the European Union (EU) should wait at least three years before they are allowed to claim welfare benefits, a major survey of social attitudes has shown.
A hardline view of immigrants is revealed in the 31st NatCen Social Research British Social Attitudes survey, in which nearly a quarter of British people said the main reason immigrants come to Britain is to claim benefits.
And a considerable drop in the number of people who believe legal immigrants who are not British citizens should have the same legal rights as British citizens was recorded - from 40% in 2003 to 27% now.
