The UK government has announced it will review its temporary limits on Bulgarian and Romanian workers with a possibility of lifting them completely.

The widely anticipated review of the controversial restrictions imposed on the latest EU members is expected by the end of this year along with an introduction of a points-based system for non-EU migrants.

The government will take advice from Migration Impacts Forum. The new body consists of experts from local government, police, health care and education sectors, business and unions, analysing wider implications of migration on the public services as well as on labour shortages in the country.

Immigration minister Liam Byrne, who co-chairs the forum, said the modified system will provide for London to “start counting people in and out of Britain.” It is estimated that nearly 8,000 Romanians and Bulgarians came into the UK between January and March this year, plus 2,400 who joined the seasonal agricultural workers’ scheme, according to UK reports.

In the meantime is promoting a scheme to help Romanians and Bulgarians come to the UK to study and work under their “Earn While You Learn” scheme.

The company arranges a study programme based on NVQ courses as well as paid full time work placements. They also assist with accommodation and obtaining a “Yellow Card” student visa, which allows full time work for vocational courses such as NVQ 2 and 3 in Health and Social Care.
