The UK population grew by almost half a million people between mid 2013 and mid 2014. The majority of this increase was directly down to international migration and in addition one quarter of all births were to non-UK born mothers.
Commenting, Lord Green of Deddington, Chairman of Migration Watch UK said:
A population increase at this rate will only worsen the housing crisis and put still more pressure on our public services. It is vital the government realise their ambition to reduce net migration to the tens of thousands.
