DEPARTMENT OF WORK AND PENSIONS POLICY ON SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETERS
EDM #1197
Tabled 18 March 2014
2013-14 Session
That this House is concerned about the shift in the policy of the Department for Work and Pensions requiring deaf people in receipt of Access to Work funds to employ a full-time salaried support worker to enable them to bridge the gap which inhibits their abilities to participate equally in the job market; is worried that this approach will probably lead to other severe problems for deaf people in work where sign language interpreters are required; and calls on the Government immediately to reverse this strategy and instead discuss a better way forward with deaf organisations.
