British Prepare for Bulgarian/Romanian Immigration

UK Home Secretary John Reid will unveil details early next week of the Government's plan to control immigration from Romania and Bulgaria when the two countries join the European Union in January.

Reports in The Observer suggest that he will announce time-limited controls on the right of citizens from both countries to work in Britain.
