The UK government will rethink the labour market situation and it may bring down the restrictions on Bulgarian and Romanian migrant workers after the first year.

The labour market doors may only stay shut for a year instead of for two, UK's Minister for Europe Geoff Hoon said in Strasbourg.

The measures imposed on the migrants seemed harsher than they actually were, and the government wanted to make them as painless as possible to the Romanians, Hoon said talking to EP observers from Bulgaria's neighbour.

Restrictions will be placed upon those who want to come and work in the UK, and not those who want to visit for a short while, Hoon explained, vowing that tourist and business trips visas will be waived come 2007.
