Cameron outlines 'British values' in schools row

David Cameron has outlined the "British values" that he believes should be applied in British schools and said they would have "overwhelming support" across the country.

The Prime Minister specified the values of "freedom, tolerance, respect for the rule of law, belief in personal and social responsibility and respect for British institutions".

Education Secretary Michael Gove yesterday said the Government will consult on new rules that could force schools to "actively promote British values".
