UK considers curbing migrants from Greece

British Home Secretary Theresa May is studying plans to contain migration to the United Kingdom if the eurozone crisis escalates, according to an interview she gave to London-based newspaper The Daily Telegraph on Saturday.

In a clear warning to Greeks who may wish to flee a crumbling Greek economy that may drop out of the eurozone, the British minister suggested that work was ongoing to restrict immigration should there be a financial collapse in the euro area, although there has been no increase in migration from the eurozone just yet.

When asked whether the government was considering curbing immigration, May answered: It is right that we do some contingency planning on this; work is ongoing.

The Daily Telegraph adds that London could contain the number of Greeks or other eurozone citizens moving to Britain to work by forcing them to submit visa applications.

Meanwhile, Home Office data showed that the number of Greeks to obtain a British passport in 2011 rose by 30 percent compared with 2010, climbing from 250 to 325.
