HC Deb 05 February 1976 vol 904 cc727-8W
Mr. Geraint Howells

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the latest figures for emigration from Wales.

Mr. John Morris

Estimates from the International Passenger Survey show that in 1974 the latest year for which figures are available, about 7,000 people left Wales for countries outside the British Isles. During the same period, 3,500 people entered Wales from outside the British Isles. Information on migration between Wales and the rest of Great Britain is available only from Census returns. A summary of the information from the 1971 Census appears in "Migration Regional Report, Wales Part I", a copy of which is in the Library.
