Home Office figures revealed a further large drop in the number of workers coming from eastern Europe to the UK through the worker registration scheme. There were 105,000 successful applications to the scheme in the year to June 2010, down 12 per cent on the same period a year earlier and almost half the level seen in the year to June 2008. A large part of the drop is due to fewer Poles coming to the UK.
“It is not known if the figures exclude returning Poles who no longer have to register. Demand to come to the UK remains strong” said Chris Slay of Skills Provision “but there is less demand for unskilled labour and most employers are now looking to plug skills gaps in areas like care, welding, CNC operators or bench joiners.”
