Eric Pickles: EU 'influx' may add to housing problems
Communities Secretary Eric Pickles has warned that an "influx" of Romanians and Bulgarians would add to the existing housing problems in the UK.
But he refused to give an estimate of the numbers of people who might move to Britain after getting the right to live and work in the UK in December.
"I don't think anybody knows," he told Andrew Neil on the BBC's Sunday Politics, adding that more work had to be done on drawing up a robust figure.
He said he did not want to start a "scare story" on the issue.
