§ Mr. Shore
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if nationals of the European Union and of the European Economic Area have the right to enter the United Kingdom(a) without an offer of employment but with the intention of looking for employment, (b) without the 462W guarantee of having somewhere to live and (c) without having provided proof that they will not have recourse to public funds during their time in the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Charles Wardle
European Community and other European Economic Area nationals may enter the United Kingdom simply on production of a valid passport or national identity card, but can be refused entry on grounds of public policy, public security or public health.
The rights of nationals of European Community and other European Economic Area member states to reside in the United Kingdom are subject to the conditions and limitations laid down in European Community law, including, in the case of those wishing to reside without working, the requirements to have sufficient resources to avoid becoming a burden on the social security system.
