Impact of immigration on UK population growth[Population: MW452]
November 01, 2018
Commenting, Lord Green of Deddington, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:
The ONS projections show continued rapid increase in the population even on the cautious assumption they have taken for immigration. They assume net migration of 165,000 which is nearly 100,000 less than current levels. This is important because immigration, together with the children born to immigrants in the UK, has accounted for over 80% of population growth since 2001.
