    Dept for Communities and Local Government
    Flint, Caroline
    [holding answer 21 April 2008]: An estimate of the migration impact on housing has not been made by the Government.The national housing and planning advice unit (NHPAU) which provides independent advice to Government on housing affordability, has produced estimates of the ratio of lower quartile house prices to lower quartile earnings up to 2026. These results use the 2004-based levels of population (including migration) projected by the Government Actuary’s Department. The results can be found in their publication “Developing a target range for the supply of new homes in England” at:”http://www.communities.gov.uk/housing/housingsupply/nhpau/publications/supplynewhomes/”
