Net migration to the UK increases again

Net migration to Britain remained steady at 250,000 in the year to June 2011, according to figures released today.

However when compared with the figures for the year ended June 2010, the figures showed an increase from 235,000.

The government has promised to cut net migration by 2015 to the “tens of thousands”.

It seems that the reduction in numbers of British citizens moving abroad and economic turmoil in the eurozone will see this target become harder and harder to reach.
