Poll: Should Labour support restrictions on the free movement of workers?

Should the party pledge to introduce tougher restrictions if it returns to office?

Seven Labour MPs had a letter to Ed Miliband published in yesterday’s Observer which called for a Labour government to limit the free movement of workers from the EU to Britain.

The authors of the letter, which included Labour MPs Frank Field and John Mann, wrote that the “political consequences” of EU migration “could prove catastrophic for our party, unless voters can see we are intent on taking serious action”.

So we want to ask you: is is time for Labour to look again at free movement within the EU? Should the party pledge to introduce tougher restrictions if it returns to office?
