§ Mr. N. Pannell
asked the Minister of Health what was the basis of the statement in his Medical Officer of Health's Report for 1960 that the net inward balance of immigration for 1960 was estimated to exceed the natural increase for that year.
§ Miss Pitt
I regret that this statement was erroneous. A correction will be included in the corresponding Report for 1961. It is estimated that during the calendar year 1960 the net inward balance of migration into England and Wales (including movement from Scotland and Northern Ireland) was 120,000.
