Population And Immigration Commission

EDM number 1007 in 2004-05, proposed by Tony Wright on 24/03/2005.

That this House believes that an independent Population and Immigration Commission with responsibility for producing statistical information on population, immigration and asylum should be established; and further believes that it should undertake studies of the costs and benefits of immigration, both in relation to the economy and to public policy generally, that it should relate these studies to wider population issues, and that it should advise Government on these matters and so contribute to more informed public understanding and discussion of population and immigration issues.

This motion has been signed by a total of 25 MPs.
