London, Oct 5 (UNI) As many as 90 per cent of Indians residing in Britain feel stronger ties to the country than natives do.

According to a recent survey, many Asians and black people, including 90 per cent of the Bangladeshis, 87 per cent of Pakistani people and 85 per cent of Black Caribbeans, are more attached to the country, Daily Mail reported.

The Citizenship Survey, carried out by the Department for Communities and Local Government, was aimed at measuring the success of efforts to help minorities integrate and encourage a common sense of nationhood.

Nearly 10,000 people were chosen to be representative of the country as a whole, and another 5,000 from ethnic minorities found that whites were more likely to believe that race prejudice and discrimination was getting worse.

Official figures estimated nearly 200,000 British people left the country to live abroad last year.

Communities Secretary Hazel Blears said, ''This survey shows our commitment to fairness, fair play and civic duty hold true and we live in a society where the overwhelming majority of people get on well together.'' UNI
