British Sign Language Community

EDM number 1746 in 2010-12, proposed by Alan Meale on 26/04/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Disability discrimination and Telecommunications.

That this House is aware that existing text-basedcommunications solutionsprovided by the telecommunications industry for deaf people in the UK do not provide access equivalent to that provided in other nations; notes that this denies British-based customers the use of sign language, the option to choose their service provider and to use the language of their choice; and calls on the Governmentimmediately todeliver equal access to telecommunications for the Britishsign language community by adopting the EU's Electronic Communications Framework into UK law.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
