It is not possible to make close estimates but the number of residents in Great Britain who were coloured immigrants from the New Commonwealth or one or both of whose parents was such an immigrant was probably of the order of one million at the end of 1966; and, on the assumptions that the current rate of net immigration and the current estimated fertility rate remain substantially unchanged, the number may be of the order of one-and-three-quarter million in 1975 and of three-and-a-half-million in 1985.
