59% of adult migrants arriving in Oldham in the first nine months of 2018 are from the EU with 53% identifying as Romanian

Todays quarterly National Insurance allocation figures show that the number of adult migrants moving to Oldham in the first 9 months of 2018 is at the same level as it was in 2017 with 29% originating in Asia and 59% arriving from the EU with 53% of those EU nationals identifying as Romanian. The second largest group of EU migrants coming to Oldham are ex-asylum seekers originally granted asylum in other EU countries mainly Italy. This is creating huge pressure on Oldham infrastructure that is already creaking under the constant pressure of high fertility unskilled immigration from Romania and over 800 asylum seekers residing in Oldham at any one time. Data on NI is available from the department of works and pensions at Stat-Xplore
