New EU workers keen on Britain

City A.M. Reporter
SOME one per cent of working age Romanians and 4.2 per cent of Bulgarians are currently looking for work in the UK this year or next, according to a BBC poll.

The study of 1,000 people in each of the two countries earlier this year revealed the percentages – which on a national scale equates to 153,000 from Romania and 196,000 from Bulgaria.

Work restrictions for migrants are due to end later this year. But many Bulgarians and Romanians said they would only move if they had a firm job offer.
