The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your question concerning the distribution of Eastern European migrants in the UK. I am replying in her absence. (163170)
The attached Table 1 shows the estimated number of people born in Eastern Europe by UK country and Government Office Region for the 12 month period ending December 2006.
The definition of Eastern Europe is the same as that used for the 2001 census. It includes all the EU accession states that are now part of the EU and also other countries.
These figures are based on the annual population survey, which is a survey of private households. As with any sample survey the estimates are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
|Table 1: Geographical distribution of UK population born in Eastern Europe( 1) 2006|
|UK country/English GOR||Thousand||Percentage of total|
|(1) Definition Eastern Europe is based on the 2001 Census country of birth definition which contains the following countries: (Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine, Yugoslavia (nos)) Notes: 1. Estimates for 2006 are based on the Annual Population Survey (APS) which includes the Labour Force Survey (LFS) plus various sample boosts. 2. It should be noted that the above estimates :- exclude certain people who have been resident in the UK for less than six months exclude students in halls of residence who do not have a UK resident parent exclude people in most types of communal establishment (e.g. hotels, boarding houses, hostels, mobile home sites, etc) are grossed to population estimates that only include migrants staying for 12 months or more are grossed to population estimates consistent with those published in spring 2003, which are significantly lower than the latest population estimates. 3. The LFS weighting does not adjust for non-response bias by the country of birth variable. Source: Annual Population Survey|
Andy Burnham: As part of CSR 2007, the Government announced a new single security and intelligence budget which brings together dedicated counter-terrorism and intelligence funding for the security and intelligence agencies, the police and all parts of Government responsible for addressing threat from terrorism.
Breaking down the new single budget by specific counter-terrorism and intelligence activities would reveal our capabilities and details of security and intelligence agencies spending beyond what is published already. It has been the policy of successive Governments not to reveal these details.
The single security and intelligence budget will rise to £3.5 billion a year by 2010-11. The Government continue to assess the priorities and will publish such details as they can of spending plans for 2008-09 to 2010-11 in due course.
