Asked about a new British motto, the PMS said it would be an interesting debate to have, but the proposal that the Government set out at the time of the constitutional reform package in July was more to do with a statement of values, which would then feed into any possible British Bill of Rights. That was the consultation that was published in July. The PMS added that the Prime Minister had no difficulties with a debate on a British motto, but the proposals were more to do with a British statement of values, a process being taken forward by the Ministry of Justice, with a view to informing any potential British Bill of Rights, should a consensus build around that.
