Migration Watch UK press statement on ONS net migration figures

February 25, 2016

Commenting on the ONS net migration figures, Lord Green of Deddington, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:

Today’s figures show that there is no sign of any let up in the severe pressures of immigration on the UK.

Unless a sharp reduction in immigration can be achieved we will face a continued rapid rise in our population for the indefinite future.

Notes to Editors

We also note that our prediction of net migration of 50,000 a year from Romania and Bulgaria is proving to be entirely accurate. See our paper here
