What are 'British Values'?

Rt Hon Charles Clarke

'British values' is a term often used in the media and by politicians, but what is really meant by it? What makes British values different from those of other nations, and are we being inclusive of all sections of British society (including all faith groups) when we use it? Leaders from major faith groups will share their perspectives at this roundtable discussion chaired by Rt Hon Charles Clarke.
