UK emigration 2007-08-29
A record number of people left the United Kingdom last year for other countries. While many Brits often retire to other locations, analysis indicates that about half of British emigrants are either looking for work or have a job lined up. Nearly 50% of those leaving are 'long-term migrants' themselves who have been in the UK for more than one year. To take one example, the number of Eastern Europeans leaving the UK increased from 3000 in 2005 to 16,000 for 2006. However, the total number of immigrants coming into Britain last year was nearly 200,000 more than the total numbers leaving.
