ROYAL NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR THE DEAF READ MY LIPS! CAMPAIGN
EDM #30
Tabled 18 November 2009
2009-10 Session
That this House congratulates the RoyalNational Institute for the Deaf on its Read my lips! campaign to improve access to lip-reading; notes that there are nine million deaf and hard of hearing people in the UK and understands the critical importance of lip-reading classes so these people can retain their dignity and independence in work and socially; further notes with concern that a number of counties have introduced fees for these classes and that this is causing hardship, and sometimes preventing vulnerable people benefiting from lip-reading classes; and therefore asksthe Government to kindly follow-up previous calls for this matter to be investigated and to seek to persuade county councils, such as Essex which is one of the worst offenders, to take a more caring attitude to lip-reading class charges.
