The Public Appointments Commission’s annual report showed that in 2011-12 just under 34 per cent of appointees were women. Normington said this figure has hardly changed in the last decade, and is “substantially worse” than the 39 per cent achieved in 2001-2.

He said that while the figures might be seen as “remarkable” in the private sector, in public bodies “they are not good enough”.
