Net migration to the UK could INCREASE after Brexit under current plans, a new report has claimed. The measure - the difference between the numbers arriving and departing- could reach 380,000 a year if the proposed new system is introduced; according to campaign group Migration Watch UK. This would be higher than the record figure of 336,000, which has been registered three times, most recently in the 12 months to June 2016. The latest statistics put net long-term international migration at an estimated 273,000 in the year to June 2018.
