Migration Watch UK comment on ONS national population projections

January 13, 2022

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

These projections point to the impact of mass immigration and uncontrolled borders, with more than two million people expected to come from overseas than leave over the next decade.

Indeed, about all of population growth over the period is likely to be due to immigration. England is already the most crowded nation in Europe.

When is the government going to get serious about controlling immigration in the way that they have so clearly failed to do so far?

Notes to Editors

  • See the ONS population projections here.
  • In 2011, when we launched our petition ‘No to a UK population of 70 million’, we were of course told that such a population rise would not happen. Now, the UK population has been projected to rise to nearly 70 million by 2030. Read our 2011 press release.
  • Read our July 2021 paper on the impact of immigration on the UK population, which found that 90% of population growth in the period 2017-2019 was due to immigration.
