NO PAYOUTS FOR ROMANIAN IMMIGRANTS | Romanian Migrants face new ban on benefits

The move followed concerns that a benefits tourism free-for-all could cost British taxpayers more than £150million, particularly with millions of Romanians and Bulgarians poised to get full freedom-of-movement rights within the EU at the end of this year.

MIGRANTS are to face tougher rules before they can claim benefits, it emerged last night.

In a direct snub to the European Union, Iain Duncan Smith is determined to scrap any automatic eligibility for handouts.

The Work and Pensions Secretary wants to ensure no new arrivals can receive cash until they have paid into the welfare system for up to a year.

His plans go further than existing rules, which last week sparked legal action over “discrimination” by the Brussels-based European Commission. But Whitehall insiders insist Mr Duncan Smith is ­prepared to escalate the row with the Eurocrats.

One friend said: “Of all the people in the Cabinet, they’ve picked a fight with the wrong person.”

His determination to take on Brussels is expected to delight Tory backbenchers and campaigners who want to cut the amount of taxpayers’ cash handed over in benefit payments.

Tory MP Peter Bone said: “What is being ­pro- posed here sounds sensible. ­Certainly people in my ­constituency are fed up with migrants being able to claim benefits without having contributed to the system.

“We need to take back control of our affairs from Europe. Ultimately, that is what will be decided when we finally hold an in-or-out referendum on our EU membership.”

MINISTERS are planning to defy the European Union by drawing up even tougher benefit rules for migrants, it emerged last night.

Senior Tory Iain Duncan Smith wants to ensure that no new arrivals from overseas will be able to claim handouts until they have paid into the welfare system for up to a year.

The Work and Pensions Secretary plans go far beyond existing limits and is ready to take on the Eurocrats.

One friend said: “Of all the people in the Cabinet, they’ve picked a fight with the wrong person.”
