Migrant Workers: Bulgarians and Romanians

Volume 712: debated on Monday 5 October 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many applications for accession worker cards, registration certificates, sector-based schemes and seasonal agricultural workers schemes have been approved for (a) Bulgarians, and (b) Romanians, including family members, since those countries’ accessions to the European Union. [HL5092]

Information relating to the number of accession worker cards issued to Romanian and Bulgarian nationals since their accession to the European Union is published in the Bulgarian and Romanian accession statistics, which are published quarterly and are available in the Libraries of the House.

Sector-based scheme (SBS) and seasonal agricultural workers scheme (SAWS) details are also on the annex of this document. Registration certificates are not issued to Bulgarian and Romanian nationals.

Information on the number of family members who have entered in the UK is not available centrally and could only be obtained at disproportionate costs.
