Fall in net migration


LONDON: Brexit is little more than a year away but there is mounting evidence it’s having a major impact on the number of European citizens looking to live and work in Britain.

Figures released this week show net migration – the difference between those coming into Britain and those leaving – from other EU countries falling below 100000 for the first time since March 2013.

Concern about immigratio­n was a key reason behind Britain’s vote in June 2016 to leave the EU. Brexit is due in March 2019.
