HC Deb 10 June 2002 vol 386 c811W
Mr. Peter Duncan

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will estimate how many UK passport holders are in permanent employment elsewhere in the EU. [57303]

Peter Hain

We do not hold information on the specific number of UK passport holders working in other EU countries. This is in keeping with the principle of freedom of movement within the EU, and the need to avoid arrangements which might interfere with individual workers' right to move to and work in other member states.
