Net migration into Britain falls in year to September 2017 – ONS


LONDON (Reuters) – The number of people migrating into Britain from other countries fell to 244,000 during the year to September 2017, down 29,000 from the same point in 2016, official data showed on Thursday.

The Office for National Statistics said net migration into Britain from the European Union – while still positive – had fallen, as fewer EU citizens were coming to Britain and more were leaving.

Net migration to Britain from non-EU countries increased in the year to September.
