Migration Watch UK press comment on ONS sub-national population projections for England

May 25, 2016

Commenting, Mr Alp Mehmet, Vice Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:

The population of England is projected to grow by 4.1 million over the next 10 years, the majority of which is down to the effects of international migration. The country is already facing a housing crisis and there is huge pressure on GP services. Meanwhile there is projected to be a shortfall in primary school places in the very near future. These figures can only make a bad situation a whole lot worse.
