I regret that the reply of 20th April to the hon. Member which was printed in the Official Report—[Vol. 930, c. 85–8.]—inadvertently contained some discrepancies. A corrected and extended version of the table contained in that answer appears below giving details of the number of persons born outside the United Kingdom who were resident in the various local authority areas at the time of the 1971 Census. Separate figures are given for those born in the New Commonwealth—including Pakistan—in the Republic of Ireland, and in other countries outside the United Kingdom. The first column includes those in respect of whom certain local authority expenditure may be eligible for grants under Section 11 of the Local Government Act 1966. No more recent information is available.
