Just a trickle of Romanians and Bulgarians could come to Britain when restrictions on them living and working in this country are lifted at the end of the year, previously unpublicised Whitehall research shows.

The statistics put under big question marks claims that a wave of migrants from Bulgaria and Romania will sweep UK within ten months.

According to the study, commissioned by the last Labour Government, the impact of the move could be to attract 8,100 Romanians and 4,600 Bulgarians to the UK.

The populist party Ukip has claimed that between 350,000 and 400,000 Romanians and Bulgarians could come to Britain, while a Tory MP has put the number at 270,000.

Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, yesterday revealed the existence of the estimates, which were published on his department's website 18 months ago.
