Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "There is no official data on ethnicity of MPs. As an individual’s ethnicity is self-defined, it is hard to obtain reliable data on MPs’ ethnicity in the absence such data being compiled officially, particularly historically. It is generally stated that the first non-white MPs since 1945 were elected in 1987, when four Labour MPs were from a non-white background"
