Motion text

That this House notes with concern that the Medical Research Council has revealed that there are four million people in the UK who could benefit from a hearing aid but do not currently use one; therefore supports RNID's Breaking the Sound Barrier campaign, which aims to change attitudes towards hearing loss and hearing aids and to encourage more people to have their hearing tested; further supports the campaign's efforts to tackle denial of hearing loss by creating opportunities for simple self-assessment, such as a five-minute telephone hearing check; and urges anyone concerned about their hearing to call 0845 600 55 55, and to encourage their friends, family and colleagues to do the same.
