PM Challenged Over Lack Of British Sign Language Interpreter

Boris Johnson faced questions from the Liaison Committee yesterday.

Caroline Nokes MP, chair of the Women and Equalities Select Committee, said:

“Can I ask, when the Home Secretary says that the current lockdown rules are clear, and the commissioner of the Metropolitan Police says it’s preposterous that anyone could be unaware of the rules, why are we still not doing a better job of explaining to vulnerable people what these rules are?”

Mr Johnson responded by saying:

“I know I have been asked this a couple of times about sign language, in particular. There are obviously various logistical issues that need to be overcome, but I will take that away and see what we can do to increase sign language.”

The Parliament TV broadcast of the session came without BSL interpretation or live subtitles.
