Migration Watch UK Press Comment on the Revised Net Migration Statistics released by the ONS


April 10, 2014

The ONS has today revised the net migration figures between 2001 and 2011, in light of the undercounting of immigration during that period, discovered as a result of the 2011 Census. Commenting, Sir Andrew Green, Chairman of Migration Watch UK said:

“This is final confirmation that net foreign immigration under Labour totalled nearly 4 million, two thirds from outside the European Union. It also shows that the peak of net migration was almost 275,000 a year, making it even more difficult for the present government to get the numbers down to the tens of thousands.”
