The Latest Net Migration Statistics

Migration Trends, Office for National Statistics, Population

Commenting on the latest net migration statistics released by the ONS this morning Sir Andrew Green, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said: 'You cannot expect to repair 15 years of mismanagement in 15 months, but it is worrying news that net migration is still running at a quarter of a million a year. There is no sign of any reduction from the huge numbers that developed under Labour.

The problem is that non-EU migrants are simply not leaving. It is time the Lib Dems understood the extent of public concern, including among 75% of their own supporters. The coalition must now take tough measures to reduce this unacceptable scale of immigration.”

Note to Editors: Statistics released by the ONS this morning show that net migration remains at 252,000.
