Migration: Isle of Man

Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 10 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what estimate he has made of the number of former UK residents who have taken up residence in the Isle of Man in the last three years. (240810)

The Ministry of Justice has not made any such estimates. However, I am informed by the Isle of Man Government that according to the 2006 Census, between 2001 and 2005 some 6,910 new residents arrived from the UK and were still residing in the island at 23-24 April 2006. It should be noted that this figure would include previous Isle of Man residents, including those who were Manx-born, and non-British nationals.
