UK’s Brain Drain / Two million in ‘talent drain’ (4,000 per day)

According to the Office for National Statistics, the number of British citizens who have moved abroad has risen by a fifth under the Coalition, reaching 154,000 last year.

Separate figures, published by the OECD, show that almost 1.3million Britons with university-level education are living abroad, more than any other developed economy.

Nick de Bois, secretary of the 1922 committee of backbench MPs, says Britain has a “sales job to do” to convince talented professionals not to leave the country.

He said: “We live in a very mobile, global market people can look around and they can judge where they want to go. My concern is that people are putting their own interests first and looking to beyond the European Union.

“We have to convince those people, who we have invested so much in, to make Britain their first choice. We have to continue to drive lower taxes, we have to keep driving the change and reform in our public services.”
