United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) has begun a trial scheme in April to deport Eastern European (A10) nationals who are sleeping rough, on grounds that their presence on the streets and without work is in violation of the treaty under which they were allowed to come here.
At present we believe the deportations are restricted to London and Peterborough, but they are expected to be extended to other London boroughs, as well as Oxford and Reading, if the scheme proves 'successful'.
We'll be reporting on this in the June issue, questioning the legal reasons and timing of the action.
