This is a shocking number of people to be paying benefits too.
Surely now is the time to start looking after are own and thank the non nationals but send them on their way?

They complain that the permits are difficult to get, and so they are often forced to live illegally.
Roma who agree to leave have each receive 300 euros (£246; $384) and an additional 100 euros for each child.
