Frank calls for extended restrictions on Romanians and Bulgarians entering the UK

18 December 2013
BBC News Frank has tabled a Motion in the House of Commons calling on the Government to extend the temporary restrictions on Romanians and Bulgarians looking to enter the country from January.

The Transitional Provisions set out in a 2005 European Treaty expire on 1st January 2014 meaning that Romanians and Bulgarians are free to migrate to Britain and compete for jobs.

Frank said: “There are nearly one million young people out of work in this country. I am therefore urging the Government not to lift Transitional Provisions on the movement of Romanian and Bulgarian citizens intending to work and live here while unemployment and youth unemployment remain so high in this country.”

Note - It was reported on BBC Radio Merseyside at 1pm on Wednesday 18th December that Frank’s Motion opposed the Government’s proposal to impose a three month waiting period for new migrants before they are eligible to receive Jobseeker’s Allowance. The Motion does not refer to this decision and was tabled before the
announcement had been made.
