Population: Bridgend

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 1 May 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment he has made of the likely effects of migration on population density in Bridgend constituency over the next 10 years. (202106)

I have been asked to reply.

Population density in Bridgend rose steadily from 1995 to 2006 as set out in the Chancellor’s answer of 3 March 2008, Official Report, column 2190W and a net inflow of migration has contributed to this. Population projections within Wales, including the analysis of migration trends are a matter for the Welsh Assembly Government but migration patterns are difficult to predict.
