The number of immigrants in the UK has risen by more than two million since 2001, according to a Government report.

Around 6.6 million UK residents – 11 per cent of the population – were born abroad, according to surveys by consultancy Oxford Economics.

The figure, based on best available estimates, shows an increase from 4.3 million in 2001, the study for the Department for Communities and Local Government found.

Think tank Migrationwatch said the study confirmed figures it had predicted seven years ago.

And it said that it is now “absolutely essential” the main parties committed themselves to a “very sharp cut in immigration”.

Chairman Sir Andrew Green called the rise an “appalling indictment” of Labour’s immigration policy, adding : “The success of the BNP can be laid firmly at their door.”

But a spokesman for the Department of Communities and Local Government said: “The Government has introduced a migration system that is firmly rooted in fairness. New controls on migrants mean that only those whose skills the country needs and no more can come here. This maximises the benefits for Britain and ensures that despite change the playing field remains level for everyone.” 

The reality is that the Government has no control over the main source of immigrants – EU citizens from Eastern Europe.
