Polish warning to David Cameron over benefits clampdown

Poland will not accept David Cameron's proposal to stop EU migrants claiming benefits for four years, its deputy foreign minister has told BBC Newsnight.

Rafal Trzaskowski said any plans to discriminate on grounds of nationality would be a "red line" issue.

Poland was ready to discuss introducing a system under which all citizens, including from the UK, had to pay in before receiving benefits, he said.
