Following the meeting of EU leaders over the weekend, where the UK agreed on a deal with the EU on reducing benefits to foreign EU workers in the country, among other issues, Germany said it would be considering a similar move.

“We can consider [this issue] and carefully look into the numbers. Germany certainly pays a lot of child benefits to EU workers compared to other countries,” Merkel said. (rg)
