Writing in The Daily Telegraph, David Cameron said:
We changed the rules so that no-one can come to this country and expect to get out-of-work benefits immediately; they must wait at least three months.
And we are announcing today that we are cutting the time people can claim these benefits for.
It used to be that European jobseekers could claim JSA (jobseeker's allowance) or child benefit for a maximum of six months before their benefits would be cut off, unless they had very clear job prospects... we will be reducing that cut-off point to three months, saying very clearly: you cannot expect to come to Britain and get something for nothing.
Taken together, this is about building a different kind of Britain - a country that is not a soft touch, but a place to play your part; a nation where those who work hard can get on.
