George et al. (2011) Impact of migration on the consumption of education and children’s services and the consumption of health services, social care and social services
George et al. (2011) include Scotland in an analysis of UK Immigration Policy focusing on the UK’s Points Based System. Within the limitations set by available data, the study examines the financial costs involved in the provision of education, health and social services for migrants. The study also provides a review of existing literature of the impact on public services that the presence of migrants has. The authors identify the area of service impact as one that has been under-researched. They incorporate a detailed account of associated expenditure stemming from migration and suggest implications for UK immigration policy.
