Home Secretary Amber Rudd has suggested there should be a competition to design a new British passport now the UK is leaving the EU.
British passports are currently red, in tune with the passports of other EU member states. A campaign has been launched, backed by The Sun, to re-introduce blue passports post Brexit.
Speaking on the fringes of the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham on Monday, Rudd said she did not know if the colour was the “most pressing” issue surrounding passports.
But added: “Perhaps we should have a passport competition, although I don’t want a Boaty McBoatface outcome. We could have select suggestions, I think.”
