Australia & New Zealand in Top Four Most Popular Destinations for Brits
Australia, Spain, Canada, New Zealand and the United States are the top five destinations for British people making long term moves, says a new survey.
The poll of 1000 people by the BBC and ICM Research of London showed 13% of British are hoping to emigrate in the "near future'" almost twice the number in 2003.
The Institute of Public Policy Research has been analysing why the British move overseas. The main reasons are desire for a better quality of life, better weather and a "belief important policy implications have not recieved enough attention".
New Zealand Immigration Minister David Cunliffe has said the Government is keen to bring in people to fill the demand for skilled labour.
