Immigrants increasingly from UK
By Julie Middleton

The proportion of new Kiwis coming from the United Kingdom has more than doubled over the past three years, according to new statistics.The report Migration Trends shows that 31 per cent of the 48,815 people who were granted residency in the last financial year were citizens of the United Kingdom.

Their number as a proportion of all migrants has been rising steadily since the 2002-03 year, when they totalled 14 per cent, behind Chinese and Indian people.
