To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to support the recommendations of the Hampton-Alexander review on FTSE women leaders to ensure that the target of there being at least 33 per cent women on FTSE 350 boards and FTSE leadership teams by the end of 2020 is met.

Information on the number of women on boards and in senior leadership in the FTSE 350 available at:

There is more to do, which is why the Hampton-Alexander Review has now extended the executive pipeline target of 33% women from the FTSE 100 to the wider FTSE 350. We will continue to support the Review to work collaboratively with business to ensure engagement with these targets across the FTSE and draw attention to the importance of diversity in board and executive roles.
