§ 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.
