Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz stated in a phone call to the British PM on Thursday 27th December 2014 that Poland will not agree to any changes which will undermine the EU single market.
According to TVN, the call, which was a request from British parties, follows on from PM David Cameron’s recent statements that he wishes to see a restriction on immigration from both the EU and beyond.
However, Ms Kopacz made her stance clear in the phone call. “The Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz stressed that freedom of movement for people is one of the fundamental pillars of the European Union single market and that it brings benefits for all citizens of the European economy. Therefore it should not be changes,” announced the Government Information Centre (CIR) in an official statement shortly after the telephone exchange. Ms Kopacz was also keen “to highlight the positive impact of Polish migration to the UK economy”, states TVN.
