Volume 475: debated on Monday 12 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what estimate she has made of the number of A8 migrants registered on the Worker Registration Scheme who have returned to their home country. (202899)

[holding answer 1 May 2008]: The purpose of the Worker Registration Scheme is to measure the number of A8 migrants entering the UK labour market and as such A8 migrants are not required to notify the Scheme when they return to their home countries.

However, estimates of net migration by A8 migrants are produced and published by the Office for National Statistics on their website.
