UK urged to keep transitional border controls

Ninety senior Conservative activists have urged David Cameron not to lift border controls on Bulgarian and Romanian migrants on 1 January.

In a letter to the PM, they argue he could use a clause in EU law to prevent a “hugely disruptive and destabilising wave of mass immigration”.

It allows countries to continue with border controls if they have “serious labour market disturbances”, they add.

They say the UK needs “space and time” to reduce long-term youth unemployment.
