Women and Equalities Committee
Follow-up inquiry into Women in the House of Commons.
The 2017 general election returned the highest number and proportion of female MPs ever recorded: 208 out of 650.
However, women still make up only 32% of MPs, compared with 30% in 2015.
The Committee is following up its 2016 report, in light of the 2017 snap election, to look at what progress has been made and where further action is needed.
Evidence given by Rt Hon Ian Blackford MP, Leader, SNP Westminster Group, Dawn Butler MP, Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities, Labour Party, Rt Hon Sir Vince Cable MP, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Amanda Sater, Deputy Chairman, Conservative Party
