  Mary Honeyball (S&D), in writing. ‒ Along with my socialist colleagues, I voted for this report which is aimed at boosting economic growth, creating sustainable jobs and empowering women. At the moment, women make up only a third of entrepreneurs. Some estimates suggest increasing levels of female entrepreneurship could deliver as much as GBP 60 billion to the UK economy by 2030. We need to invest in women’s potential to contribute to new and growing sectors like the digital economy. We also need to ensure that self-employment pays well and that rights such as maternity leave are guaranteed.
