§ Mr. Rowland
asked the Minister of Health, by how much the population of Great Britain is expected to increase in 1965; and what proportion of this increase is attributable to net immigration from the Commonwealth and foreign countries.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
The increase in the population of Great Britain between mid-1964 and mid-1965 is expected to have been about 400,000. Of this number 28,000 or 7 per cent. is attributable to net immigration from all overseas countries (including the Republic of Ireland).
