Immigration from EU countries could be capped at 75,000 a year under proposals by the UK Home Office, reports the Sunday Times. Unlimited immigration from the EU has damaged the job prospects of low-skilled Britons, encouraged benefit tourism and caused the "build-up of social tensions", according to the leaked plan.
