HC Deb 24 July 1990 vol 177 c172W
Mr. Alfred Morris

To ask the Lord President of the Council if there are any plans to arrange for a publicly broadcast trial of provision for the use of subtitling and sign language in televising the proceedings of the House as suggested by the Royal National Institute for the Deaf; and if he will make a statement.

Sir Geoffrey Howe

This is a matter which the Select Committee on Televising of Proceedings of the House, and its successor Committee, will be considering in the autumn, in consultation with the broadcasters, once the detailed evaluations of the signing and subtitling trials recently organised by the Select Committee are available.
