Abstract

One of the coalition’s key policies is to reduce net migration below 100,000 to take pressure off public services, particularly housing. But the government is only able to target migration from outside the EU. What exactly is the impact of non-EU migrants on the UK and its housing market? Kath Scanlon finds that skilled non- EU migrants in the UK mostly live in privately rented accommodation and have affected house prices by less than 1 per cent over 5 years.
