The lead researcher on a study into how much immigrants contribute to the UK in taxes says his team's work shows a "positive picture".
Professor Christian Dustmann, director of UCL's Centre for Research and Analysis of Migration (Cream) and co-author of the study, said:
"A key concern in the public debate on migration is whether immigrants contribute their fair share to the tax and welfare systems.
"Our new analysis draws a positive picture of the overall fiscal contribution made by recent immigrant cohorts, particularly of immigrants arriving from the EU."
Professor Dustmann said European migrants in particular were more likely to be in work and less likely to claim benefits than those born in the UK.
