MPs Retirement Rates

newsboxThe Centre for Women and Democracy published figures relating to the retirement rates of Westminster MPs.

The report states that there has been much inaccurate reporting in recent times about the retirement rates including the fact that the length of time women spend as MPs is considerably shorter than their male counterparts. The report does not draw any conclusions; it sets out in tabular form what has happened since the 1997 election in terms of the dropout of MPs, length of service and the difference between the three major parties.  The two page report can be seen here.
