To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if she will undertake an assessment of the effects of immigration at regional level in the United Kingdom.

No assessment has been made of the impacts of migration at the regional level. The independent Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) published an analysis of the impacts of migration on 10 January. I have placed a copy of the MAC's report in the Library of the House. The report and accompanying research are also available on the Home Office website at:

The Home Office is currently undertaking research to build a picture of the local impacts of non-EEA migration to the UK. The resulting data will enable an assessment of the impact of migration on public services, such as social housing, at the regional level. The research will be published in 2013.
