#UnpubTimesLetter 11


Sir,

I’m perplexed by David Cameron’s push for an emergency brake on benefits for EU migrants. Surely his intention is to make this permanent so why pursue a temporary measure? The brake would affect EU migrants, including British citizens returning to the UK – and it’s doubtful inevitable headlines of Brits harmed will be well received. I suspect this proposal will be viewed as another gimmick dressed up as policy.
