"Population Policy Under Review"

Call to freeze the population


Deputy Daniel Wimberley

A FREEZE on immigration has been proposed until the States get to grips with population policy.
In the wake of figures that showed that immigration has been running at almost double the States-approved target for the last five years, Deputy Daniel Wimberley has proposed a temporary freeze.
He also wants a full independent review into how the ministerial net-immigration target of 325 immigrants per year turned into a five-year average of 640, and for ministers to bring a new population policy to the States next year.
