Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said he would ask his British counterpart David Cameron to explain his earlier remarks made about Polish migrants taking advantage of UK welfare system when the two leaders speak on the phone on Wednesday.
In an interview with BBC on January 6 2014, Cameron said that he will call for an amendment to the EU’s governing treaties that would allow Britain to withhold welfare payments from workers of other European nations, whose children are living overseas. As Cameron made the case for change he singled out people from Poland, one of the biggest migrant communities in Britain, as an example of the potential for the rules to be abused.
