"More than 100,000 Eastern European migrants will be able to claim tens of millions of pounds in benefits in Britain as the Government is forced to scrap safeguards imposed seven years ago. The ending of the restrictions on access to key benefits will happen within weeks as ministers have conceded that they are powerless to prevent the change. The migrants, from countries including Poland and the Czech Republic, will become eligible to claim jobseeker’s allowance, council tax benefit and housing benefit from May, when a special scheme introduced under EU rules in 2004 is abolished."
