COUNTER-TERRORISM

7th November 2017

Sir Nicholas Soames: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what definition of British Values is used for the purposes of the Prevent Programme.

Mr Ben Wallace, Minister of State for Security: The Prevent Strategy defines our fundamental values as including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs. It is important to articulate British Values as being core and fundamental to life in Britain. They are not uniquely British, but they are the things we value in Britain.
