ONS immigration statistics for year ending December 2018

May 24, 2019

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

Overall net migration remains at more than a quarter of a million - still unacceptably high. And despite the uncertainty during 2018, nearly 75,000 more EU nationals arrived than left, as well as 232,000 non-EU nationals. The clear message in these figures for the next Prime Minister is that they must make it a priority to deliver on the government's pledge to reduce immigration levels by a lot, in line with the public's wishes.
