Commenting, Lord Green of Deddington, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:
Let us not forget that we still have a net inflow from the EU of about 90,000 a year. Meanwhile, it is extremely disappointing that net migration from outside the EU has risen by about 30% and now stands at nearly a quarter of a million -the highest level in at least a decade.The government should have been able to reduce this inflow as they have long promised but, clearly, they have been asleep at the switch.
Net migration during the year to March 2018 was estimated at 271,000. To see the full ONS statistics, click here.
