‘The Great Charter Convention: A New Magna Carta?’

Martyn Atkins

2015 marks the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, and the Political and Constitutional Reform Committee of the House of Commons is holding a consultation called 'A New Magna Carta?' asking whether the UK should be moving toward a codified constitution.

At this event on 6 Nov 2014 Martyn Atkins, the committee's clerk, talked about the consultation and the ways that students can participate, including by making submissions and by participating in the contest to draft a preamble for a new constitution.

The event was organised by the Constitutional Studies Programme, Department of Politics and International Relations.
