Report on Pakistani immigrants in Birmingham, 1958

Reproduced here is a draft of the report compiled by Sir Alexander Symon, High Commissioner for the United Kingdom in Pakistan, following a visit to Birmingham in 1958. Large numbers of immigrants from Ireland, Pakistan, the West Indies and elsewhere came to Birmingham during the 1950s and 1960s. Although the majority of the Irish dispersed throughout the city and became assimilated into the community, immigrants from other countries found themselves increasingly isolated in the areas towards the centre of the city where housing was poor.
