I have removed part of this post as I was misled by the House of Commons Library.
Unfortunately I was wrong expecting the House of Commons Library to be a reliable source and am pleased to show below an email from them. Unfortunately it only came to me, the author, via a third party. They couldn't even get that right!
It has come to our attention that there is a link to one of our Standard Notes, about all women shortlists, on your blog site. Regrettably the table erroneously listed Geraldine Smith as being selected as a candidate at the 1997 general election as a result of being on an all women shortlist. I gather that this mistake has caused Ms Smith some embarrassment and we are very sorry that this has happened; the corrected note is now available at http://www.parliament.uk/commons/lib/research/briefings/snpc-05057.pdf.
