Women and Equalities Committee

Women in the House of Commons inquiry

Inquiry status: follow-up

Follow-up inquiry into Women in the House of Commons.

Scope of the inquiry

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.
