HC Deb 06 July 1973 vol 859 c229W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what proportion of the population of the United Kingdom have lived in the same place for five years or more.

Mr. Alison

The provisional percentages for 1971, based upon a 1 per cent. sample of census returns, are England and Wales 57.7; Scotland 57.3; Great Britain 57.6. The figures for Northern Ireland are not yet available.

To leave everyone aged under five out of account would add about 5.0 to each of these figures.
