HC Deb 01 March 1993 vol 220 c18W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what representations he has received about the extension of the Deaf Awareness Week recently held in Liverpool schools; what plans he has to encourage the extension of this scheme to other local authorities; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Forth

I am sure that other local education authorities will have noted this promotion of deaf culture and signing and that this will inform their decisions about how best to make appropriate provision for children with impaired hearing.

Forward to
