UK Prime Minister David Cameron has told the BBC that pulling out of the European Union would not ease the tension caused by immigration in some communities.

He said welfare reform would encourage more British-born workers to compete with EU nationals in the labour market.

Mr Cameron was responding to concerns raised in a report on the impact of migration on the Lincolnshire town of Boston.

Large numbers of migrant workers from Eastern Europe have settled in Lincolnshire and surrounding counties over the past few years to work in the food production industry.

Some claim the families from Eastern Europe has put massive pressure on public services and excluded British people from many jobs.

In an interview with BBC Look North, David Cameron said: “If we have a welfare system that encourages and pays people to go out to work, rather than stay at home, there’ll be more British people in those jobs and fewer people coming from Europe to do those jobs.

“But I don’t want us to leave the European Union because we are a trading nation. We need those markets open.”

At the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham, David Cameron suggested there could be a referendum on the UK’s future in the EU.

But many of Mr Cameron’s own MPs are urging him to commit to a timescale for a referendum.

Speaking to the Sunday Politics in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, the Conservative MP for Cleethorpes Martin Vickers said: “I’d like to see the government put forward a clear timetable towards a referendum.

“I don’t think the issue will be settled until the British people have had a chance to vote on it.”

Whether David Cameron likes it or not, the many issues surrounding Europe are firmly back on the main agenda of British politics. Source: BBC.

Earlier this week Home Secretary Theresa May said she was considering reforms to ‘free movement’ of EU workers.

May is looking into a number of wide-ranging treaty busting restrictions on the European Union’s free movement of workers, including access to the UK for dependants of EU citizens, and fresh curbs on access to benefits for EU citizens.

Romania and Bulgaria are due to be given full free movement in 2014, after a seven-year restriction on working in the UK. May did not say whether or not restrictions could or would be extended.

Even as members of the European Union, Bulgarians and Romanians do not enjoy the same rights to work as the earlier A8 Eastern European EU accession countries such as Poland and Latvia.

Many employers overlook the fact that they cannot employ a Romanian or Bulgarian worker in the same way they can a Polish or other A8 accession country citizen.

With Europe facing a financial crisis and the possible meltdown of the Euro, Immigration Matters recently asked if the EU’s Free Movement dream is falling apart along with the rest of its European super state ideology?
