Polls Predict Small Increase in Women MPs

20 Apr, 2010

CFWD's analysis of recent polls suggests that, although there will be a small increase in the number of women MPs, the percentage increase is unlikely to exceed 5%. This would mean that less than a quarter of MPs would be women - an improvement on the 19.5% at the dissolution of Parliament, but still very poor. And this is regardless of how well or badly individual parties are doing.

This new report updates the analysis done at the beginning of March, and both can be downloaded using the links below.
