Britain is paying Poles £4.5m a week in benefits and Poles are sending home £3bn a year




” Reference of the News in the last of the article”

“Polish workers in Britain have sent home £23billion in the past seven years, an official report revealed last night.

Amounting to more than £3billion a year, this shows how much money has been transferred since the European Union expanded to include former Eastern Bloc countries in 2004.

Since then hundreds of thousands of Poles have flocked to Britain and, despite the recession, they are continuing to arrive in their thousands.

The report by Poland’s statistics office revealed that last year migrant workers helped push up the total sent back home to some £3.7billion.

The study also revealed that of the 390,000 Poles thought to be living in the UK around one in five – some 70,000 – are thought to be unemployed.

It would mean British taxpayers are forking out some £4.5million a week in unemployment benefit for migrants.

Kris Miller, Courier, 23/06/14. Picture today shows anti Polish graffiti on a sign an Dundee City Council, Marchbanks Depot on Fairfield Road.


Since 2004 Poles have been free to work in the UK with few restrictions.

The controversial decision was made despite other countries, such as Germany, imposing rigid controls for up to seven years.

And in April the time limit on EU rules restricting migrant workers’ access to benefits expired – giving Poles exactly the same rights as British nationals.

The study from the Central Statistical Office of Poland – the Polish equivalent of the Office for National Statistics – suggests Polish migrants are raising their aspirations.

In the early years they were content to do more menial work and happy to have any job, but the study found many are now shunning low-level employment and want jobs they feel are more fitting to their qualifications.

Part of Britain’s attraction  for Poles is better childcare facilities and more generous state aid than back home, the authors say.

In 2004 a total of 75,000 Poles came to Britain, a figure which went up to 96,000 in 2007 but dropped off to 39,000 in 2009.

In total the report estimates there are now nearly 400,000 Polish immigrants living in the UK, the equivalent of a city larger than Cardiff.

In London alone the Polish immigrant population stands at 123,000.


The study acknowledges some 75 per cent of those Poles living abroad have done so for more than a year.

In addition, a significant proportion have already spent more than half a decade outside their homeland since 2004.

Some, however, are choosing not to work and 18 per cent of those in Britain do not have a job – the equivalent of 70,200 people.

Poland’s population now stands at approximately 36.8million, down from 38.2million in 2004.

It is thought around two million Poles are living abroad, but experts say this may underestimate the true number.

The study also suggested more than one million Poles who have left the country to live abroad will not return home, but make their life where they have settled.

Recent figures from the ONS suggested four out of five jobs created in the past year had gone to foreign nationals.

They showed the number of foreign men and women in work soared by 334,000, to more than four million.

In the same period – to the end of March this year – the number of British-born workers finding employment rose by only 77,000.

The number of Eastern Europeans working here fell sharply during the recession. At the end of last year there were 472,000, down 30,000 from its peak.

However in the past nine months some 110,000 Poles and other Eastern Europeans have found jobs in Britain – a 23 per cent increase.
