Our Response To The Government’s Immigration White Paper

The proposal to admit an unlimited number of low-skilled workers from a range of countries is astonishing. A validity ‘limited to twelve months’ could well become a means of fiddling the immigration figures since they do not count as migrants unless they intend to be here for more than a year. Furthermore, there is no way in which their […]

Signing United Nations Compact Could Only Undermine Government’s Commitment To Control And Reduce Immigration

The UK Government should make it clear that it will not sign the prospective United Nations ‘Global Compact on Migration for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration’. If they have any regard for their election promises it would be entirely hypocritical to do so. The accord would commit signatories to the goal of ‘enhanc[ing] availability and flexibility of pathways […]

Office For National Statistics Household Projections For England

Commenting, Alp Mehmet, Vice Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said: “This is a hopeless underestimate. The ONS are projecting annual net migration 25% lower than seen in the last ten years.

Response To Critics Of Our Research On The Impact Of Immigration On Population Growth

A recent Migration Watch UK paper shows that 82% of the total 6.6 million increase in the UK population between 2001 and 2016 was due, directly and indirectly, to immigration – that is to say a result of the net increase of those who were born overseas and their UK-born children.

Letter From Lord Green Of Deddington, Chairman Of Migration Watch Uk, To Sir David Clementi, Chairman Of The Bbc

Dear Sir David, I am writing to express my serious concerns about a BBC video produced for ‘teaching’ 14 to 16 year olds about immigration. I am sure you will agree that immigration is an important and sensitive issue which should be treated with care and objectivity. Unfortunately, this video fails to meet these criteria. […]

Report By Scottish Affairs Committee Should Acknowledge That Over Two-thirds Of Scots Want Reduced Eu Immigration

The House of Commons Scottish Affairs Committee has released its report on the topic of ‘Immigration and Scotland’. This is our response. It is very disappointing that the report’s conclusion saw fit to ignore the crucial fact, made in both oral and written evidence to the Committee, that the majority of Scots [55%] think that immigration levels over […]
