Hague: EU migration figures 'guesswork'

Foreign Secretary William Hague has described attempts to estimate the number of Romanians and Bulgarians who might move to Britain next year as "guesswork".

Mr Hague told The Andrew Marr Show that the government would "tackle benefit tourism" and reduce net immigration.

Migration Watch has recently predicted that 50,000 Bulgarians and Romanians will come to the UK every year when restrictions on their right to work are lifted.
