§ Mr. Proctor
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the net outward migration during 1981 of people born in the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
The best available estimate is 108,000 persons. This is derived from the international passenger survey and excludes migration with the Irish Republic. This figure, and further details, may be found in tables 2.5 and 3.4 of the OPCS publication "International Migration 1981", series MN No. 8.
