Net migration statistics for year to June 2019

November 28, 2019

Net migration was 212,000 in the year to June 2019. Total immigration was 609,000 and total emigration was 397,000. Non-EU net migration is at 229,000 and has been steadily rising since 2013 - 344,000 people arrived while 115,000 left. EU net has fallen by 167,000 since 2015 - 199,000 people arrived and 151,000 left.

Alp Mehmet, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:

It is hardly surprising that there was a fall in EU net migration given the Brexit uncertainties and parliamentary shenanigans of the past year, not to mention the usual net outflow of British citizens. In fact, non-EU net migration has continued the upward trend of the past six years. Immigration on this scale still means one person arriving every minute and the UK growing by a million every three to four years over the next decade. No wonder 30 million UK adults want tighter controls.
