Slight fall in UK immigration in the quarter to last September



Source

The number of EU nationals in Britain who had their applications processed for UK residence documents to secure their individual status post-Brexit doubled from 92,289 in 2015 to 201,287 in 2016.
More than 140,000 were successful.
Update
I thought the fall in Sterling would make the UK much less attractive than this small change indicates.

Anyway another confusing statement

The UK is not about to “suddenly shut the door” on low-skilled EU migrants, Brexit secretary David Davis has reiterated.

Davis said in a press conference in Riga, Latvia, that Britain wanted control over immigration but that it would only restrict free movement of people when it was in the “national interest”.
