Gordon Brown Lets No Bulgarians and Romanians

Date: 12.09.2006

UK's Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown who has been urgently aspiring after Tony Blair's post, stood explicitly against the opening of British labour market for Bulgarians and Romanians after the two countries' accession to the EU. "I believe we need policy of controlled migration. We should mind this in the case with Romania and Bulgaria," he said in an interview for the BBC.

For the time being British Prime Minister Tony Blair has not aired his position on the issue but a decision has to be taken by this autumn.

Debates on the issue continue in the United Kingdom. The trade unions called for the government to allow free access of workers from Bulgaria and Romania to the British labour market.

In the context of combating terrorism, Brown insisted on foreigners learning English if they wish to become British citizens. "We need stronger feeling of Britishness and bigger contribution from these people who want to become British citizens," Brown said.
