Immigration to UK should be harder, says Cameron

Prime Minister David Cameron has said it should be harder for people to come and stay in the UK.

Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, he said a key reason to be a European Union member were freedoms, such as the movement of services, goods and people and there were already restrictions in place.

Asked if the free movement of people inside Europe could be limited in order to give Britain more control of its borders and as part of a renegotiated relationship, Mr. Cameron said: "Should we look at the arguments about should it be harder for people to come and live in Britain and claim benefits… frankly we should."
