Anglo-Romanian deal to relax migration controls?

The Sunday Telegraph claimed London had struck a deal with Romania to relax migration controls in return for helping prime minister Blair meet asylum seeker targets. According to the newspaper, Tony Blair promised to lift all visa requirements by spring of this year.

Downing Street said the government was working with Romania to remove the need for visas but denied it was a trade-off to cut asylum seeker numbers. Immigration Minister Beverley Hughes was forced to resign last week over the issue of Romanians and Bulgarians using forged documents to enter the UK.
