British taxpayers to fork out millions more in benefits for EU migrants

Daily Mail
"Taxpayers face paying millions of pounds in extra benefits to Eastern European immigrants because of changes to EU regulations.For the past seven years, immigrants from eight countries due to become full members of the EU were banned from claiming benefits in the UK until they had worked here for 12 months.But from April 2011, immigrants from Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia and the Czech Republic – where income levels are 40 per cent of the European average – will be allowed to claim Jobseekers’ Allowance and other benefits after just three months."
