HC Deb 01 April 1969 vol 781 c87W
Mr. Powell

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what current rate of net immigration the General Register Office used in June, 1967, for the purpose of its projection of 3½ million coloured immigrants and their children resident in Great Britain in 1985 on current rates of net immigration and estimated fertility.

Mr. Crossman

The rate of net inward movement at the time was estimated to be about 57,000, and it was assumed that this rate would continue throughout the projection period.
