In a UK panel show, Question Time, a politician says:
However, if you have a country in which the population goes up as a direct result of immigration, what you find is not a shortage of green fields [...] you find a shortage of primary school place, you find a shortage of GP surgeries [...] you find congestion [...] What you find is [...] the general quality of life for the mass of population has gone down.
He goes on to specify immigration in the UK since 1990 as an example.
However, quality of life rankings suggest Britain doesn't have a serious problem with quality of life.
Is there any evidence to support the claim that countries with population growth due to immigration suffer from lowered quality of life standards (e.g. the Human Development Index).
