Commenting, Lord Green of Deddington, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:
These projections confirm what we have been saying for some time. Namely, that if the current high level of net migration to England continues, we will need to build a home every six minutes, night and day, just to cope with the added demand for housing resulting from immigration.
With so many young people negatively impacted by the housing crisis, it's no wonder that a majority of 18-24 year olds support the government's pledge to reduce the level of net migration significantly. Given the current deep disillusion with politicians, the government need to start taking real action to ensure that their immigration promises are delivered soon.
