European Union immigration to Britain falls to five-year low Europe 13:09

  • Net migration to the UK from the EU is at its lowest level in five years while non-EU migration has risen significantly

That figure is now around 350,000, according to its figures.

By contrast, net migration from non-EU countries has risen significantly in recent months, with a 46 per cent rise in immigration in 2017 compared to 2016 pushing numbers to the highest level since 2010.

The Office for National Statistics said that overall, about 280,000 more people came to the United Kingdom than left in 2017.

Overall net long-term migration, including arrivals and departures of non-EU nationals, was about 282,000 in 2017.

European Union citizens and family members, believed to number around 3.5 million, who have been in the United Kingdom for five years by the end of 2020 will be able to apply for "settled status", meaning they are free to continue living and working in the United Kingdom indefinitely.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council revealed in March that nearly 4,000 EEA health staff left their register in the previous year, with 47% citing Brexit as one of their main reasons for leaving the UK. The increase in net immigration in 2017 was probably due to an undercount of foreign students in 2016.

The figures come after British Prime Minister Theresa May said that her aim was to reduce net migration to tens of thousands rather than hundreds of thousands.

"More EU nationals continue to arrive than leave and as the ONS have made clear, net migration has been broadly stable since late 2016".

"But while it is not unusual to see quarterly ups and downs, we know more needs to be done if we are to bring net migration down to sustainable levels".

"As this data shows, the government's net migration target is utterly misconceived", Diane Abbott, the shadow home secretary, told the newspaper. Immigration minister Caroline Nokes confirmed the number yesterday.

"Net migration fell following record levels in 2015 and early 2016 and has been broadly stable".

"Our paper suggests that Brexit could be an even more effective means of reducing immigration than previously thought", he added hopefully.

It is the highest for 18 months, however.

Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes said the statistics show "more of the people who are coming to the United Kingdom are coming for the reasons we would want - to take up a definite job or to study".

Emigration has shown a gradual increase since 2015 and is now around 350,000, the ONS said. This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries.
