White British school children 'could be a minority within 40 years'
White British school children ‘could be a minority within 40 years’ with just 50 to 60 per cent of the population to define themselves as white British by the year 2060, study claims
- Around 50% of British population will define themselves as white British in 2060
- Keir Starmer said figures show the government has ‘completely lost control’
White British children could be a minority in schools within 40 years, a study has claimed.
Research suggested that between 50 and 60 per cent of the overall British population would define themselves as white British by 2060, according to Oxford academic Dr Paul Morland.
However, this would probably mean that young children in primary school, and the wider population in big cities, would have already passed the threshold where white Britons are a minority.
The findings come after 2021 census data released last year, which showed that London and Birmingham are now both minority white British.
Meanwhile, according to The Telegraph, forecasts by immigration experts show that net migration for 2022 is likely to rocket to between 650,000 and one million, putting pressure on the government.

Net migration is expected to be at least double the pre-Brexit rate of 200,000 to 300,000.
Labour leader Keir Starmer said it showed the government has ‘completely lost control’.
‘Like almost everything else under this Government, there’s no plan, there’s no control and, just like everything else, it seems like the system is broken,’ he said.
A spokesperson for Rishi Sunak commented: ‘The Prime Minister’s overall commitment is to reduce migration overall and that is what we are trying to do through tackling illegal migration and the points-based system.’

Dr Morland said: ‘In terms of the speed of the decline, there was work done by demographers at Oxford and other work more recently that looks at 2060, where we’ll have perhaps 50-60 per cent of people defining themselves as white British.
‘But of course at that point, if you look at the primary school or the school age folk or the people in the large cities, it would be a minority and a declining minority.’
Home Office figures prove that in the year to December 2022 there were 1.37 million visas granted to non-EU citizens to flee condlict, study or work.
