An article in the Daily Mail suggested that some research was a joint effort between MigrationWatch and ONS. The National Statistician wrote to point this was not the case.
Your report ‘Third World migrants behind our 2.3m population boom’ (2 June) wrongly attributes this study to joint research between the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and MigrationWatch. ONS was not involved in, or consulted about, the analysis. The research does make use of ONS figures, but we have reservations about the analysis.
