AMSTERDAM, Dec 3 (Reuters) - The Dutch parliament on Tuesday voted for a motion that will force companies in the Netherlands to increase the number of women on their boards.

Following a 87-to-63 vote in favour of the motion, companies listed on the Amsterdam stock exchange will have to include at least 30% women on their supervisory boards.

Companies that do not meet this target will have to replace any man leaving the board by a woman, or leave the seat empty. (Reporting by Bart Meijer. Editing by Jane Merriman)
