HC Deb 02 December 1982 vol 33 c272W
Mr. Marlow

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, for each of the past 20 years, what has been the New Commonwealth and Pakistan population at 1 January, the estimated net influx through migration during each year, the estimated natural increase, the thus calculated end period figure, the actual end period figure and the discrepancy between these last two.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

Estimates of the size of the population of New Commonwealth and Pakistan ethnic origin and components of change are not available on an annual basis for the years preceding 1971.

Mid-year estimates of the size of the population for the period 1971–80 and the components of change were published in OPCS Monitor Pp1 81/6, a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend.
