Expats out of pocket after Government cuts their benefits - Telegraph

And yet the Govenment pays Polish immigrants for children they leave behind in Poland!

"Yet despite the ruling, the UK Government has stuck with its policy of withholding the payments – prompting a warning from the European Commission that unless Britain falls into line by the end of this month, ministers will be dragged back into court and forced to defend their decisions.

The approach contrasts with the stance taken by the British government on paying benefits to foreigners living in the UK. The Sunday Telegraph revealed last year that in order to comply with European Union rules, Britain is paying child benefit for 37,900 children who have remained behind in Poland while one or both of their parents work in the UK.
