Responding to the last post which asks how many British MPs have doctorates in science:

Uk MPs with science doctorates you ask?
Well in 2012 there was one MP with a science degree. https://www.theguardian.com/…/kicking-down-doors…

Sadly he lost his seat last year. So, um…

After a bit of digging I found this page:

http://duncan.hull.name/2015/05/08/scientist-mps/

Which puts the current parliament at 26 MPs with science degrees and 1, Therese Coffey, with a Ph.D in chemistry.

Thats’s 26 out of 650… and 1 out of 650.
