I asked the Prime Minister another question today on the lack of accessible communication during his press conferences and why he continues to exclude disabled people who rely on British Sign Language.

I have heard from countless disabled people across the country frustrated with this government’s unwillingness to correct this failure – it is completely unacceptable, it must be fixed and fixed now.

My question:

Thank you, Mr Speaker.

*BSL* Why no interpreter in-room briefings, why is this not sorted?

If the Prime Minister doesn’t understand, imagine how those who rely on British Sign Language feel at his press briefings.

£2.6 million spent on the new press room, yet still no interpreter. What message does he think this sends to disabled people?
