Projections suggest the UK could become the most populous in Europe by the middle of the century
France’s population was 67million while the UK followed with an estimated 65.8million in January, according to figures from Euro-stat, the European Union’s statistical agency.
And projections have now suggested that if the UK remained in the EU it could become the most populous in the bloc by the middle of the century.
The population gap between the UK and France has narrowed from 1.7million to just over 1.2million in the last five years.
The EU’s population had increased by 1.5million people to 511.8million in January due to migration, Euro-stat concluded.
The report said: “During 2016 as many births as deaths were recorded in the EU (5.1 million), meaning that the natural change of the EU population was neutral.
“The population change (with 1.5 million more inhabitants) was therefore due to net migration.”
It comes after Office of National Statistics (ONS) revealed Britain’s population had seen its sharpest increase in nearly 70 years, largely due to mass immigration.
The ONS report revealed that eight east European countries had almost 100 times more of their citizens living in the UK than Britons in their countries. But this will be reversed very soon when they ALL go back home-------if they dont then heaven help politicians
Net international migration continued to be the main driver
Neil Park, head of the Population Estimates Unit for OHS-------the word to look at is ESTIMATES---------in truth we are more likely to have 70 million now
About 1.3 million people from Poland and seven other eastern European states (EU8) were living in the UK between 2013 and 2015 but only 14,100 Britons lived in those same eight countries – with 42 per cent residing in the Czech republic.
The figures highlighted from the EU8 since 2004 when Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia joined the bloc.
I think the above countries will be delighted when all their people have to go back home------which is what the British people voted for
Neil Park, head of the Population Estimates Unit for OHS, said: "The population of the UK continued to grow in the year to mid-2016 at a similar rate to that seen over recent years.
“Net international migration continued to be the main driver, but there was also an increase in births and fewer deaths than last year.
"Population growth was not evenly distributed however, with London’s growth rate more than twice that in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and the three northern English regions."
The report also found that the UK’s food production industry is heavily dependent on migrants, with 228,000 of the 5.2 million people employed in distribution, hotels and restaurants in the UK coming from the eight countries.
What they really mean is that the greedy farmers will not pay the wages to bring the crops in nor invest in machinery, its time these POOR farmers started hiring UK people,
Robin Maynard, director of Population Matters, said: “For people from the former Soviet bloc, the UK has long been an attractive destination — something we can be proud of.
“However, we are one of the most densely populated countries in Europe and population growth from any source puts pressure on our infrastructure, services and environment.
