Women on Boards

Asked whether the PM was happy about proposed EU quotas for women on company boards, the PMS said that we do not see any merit in imposing quotas, and we do not see it as an issue for the EU. This should be an issue for individual countries to consider. Looking at recent figures for the UK, women now accounted for 17.3% of people on FTSE 100 boards, which was up from 12.5% at the time of the Davies Review in 2011. Women also accounted for 44% of newly appointed FTSE100 directorships.
