820,000 Move To Scotland Since 2007



As thousands of revellers flock to Scotland to celebrate Hogmanay, SNP MSP Joan McAlpine has welcomed statistics showing over 820,000 people from the rest of the UK have moved to Scotland since the SNP came to power in 2007.

And migration statistics show there are 100,000 more people in Scotland as a result.

Ms McAlpine, SNP MSP for South Scotland, said:

“Scotland has attracted over 800,000 people from the rest of the UK in the last four years to live here.

“Our increasingly multi-cultural society is growing as people choose our beautiful country as their home.

“Scotland is a dynamic and growing country with a vision for independence, shared and supported by many people from all backgrounds.

“More people are choosing to make Scotland their home than ever before because of our positive vision for the future of a better, wealthier, greener and safer country.

“And as an independent nation we will continue to welcome those who want to live in Scotland and play their part in our society.

“That is why more people are choosing to live here than moving the other way, with 100,000 more settling in Scotland.

“The SNP is dedicated to making Scotland better and we’re taking the next steps to making this country truly flourish.

“But Scotland needs to have responsibility for its own destiny – devolution is simply not enough.”
