Public Services & Infrastructure - Main Points


  • Population growth, fuelled by immigration, has placed considerable strain on the country’s infrastructure.
  • In 2015/16 there were almost 750,000 new migrant GP registrations in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the highest on record. That is more than one every minute.
  • In 2016 over a quarter of births in England were to mothers born abroad, placing significant pressure on maternity services.
  • A quarter of England’s primary schools are already full and 750,000 new places will be required in England by 2025.
  • There are substantial costs associated with expanding the existing infrastructure required by the rapid population growth resulting from immigration.
