8 By 2007, over 8% of the UK population was foreign born - more than double the global average
9 The UK relied on its colonies and dominions (Canada, Australia and New Zealand) during the Second World War. Small numbers of colonial soldiers, such as those from the Caribbean, stayed on in the UK after the war.
9.1 They were also joined by economic migrants from Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and other island colonies as part of a deliberate policy to fill labour shortages in sectors such as the railways, buses and the NHS
