UK Carries On Crusade against Bulgarians, Romanians, Wants New EU Rules
Britain wants to change the rules governing the free movement of people across the EU, Home Secretary Theresa May will tell European ministers, BBC reported.
May will speak in Brussels, ahead of the lifting of movement controls on Bulgarians and Romanians.
She says free access to Labour markets must not be allowed to lead to "mass migration".
However, some other countries have already vowed to defend what they regard as a fundamental EU principle.
EU justice and home affairs ministers will meet in Brussels on Thursday.
May argues that problems caused by free movement must be addressed and the rules should be changed.
In a statement she questioned why national governments should not be be allowed to impose a cap on numbers if European immigration reached certain thresholds.
She said she planned to make clear at the Brussels meeting "that I believe we need to change the way free movement rules work.
"First, for future accession treaties, we must be able to slow full access to each other's labour markets until we can be sure it will not lead to mass migration.
"Second, looking ahead, we must seize the opportunity presented by the prime minister's plan to reform the EU and address the problems caused by free movement.
"It is right that the national governments of the EU reform the way free movement rules work."
