HC Deb 10 July 1967 vol 750 c26W
93. Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the number of aliens and Commonwealth immigrants, respectively, in this country in January, 1960, and January, 1965; and what are the estimated respective totals on January, 1970, January, 1975, and January, 1980.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

I understand from the Registrar General that at the time of the 1961 census there were 511,000 aliens and 657,000 Commonwealth immigrants in this country, and that he estimates that the corresponding figures for mid-1966 were 650,000 and 1,100,000. Estimates are being made of the figures for the three following five-yearly intervals, and I shall write to the hon. Member.
