British Sign Language Bill (28 Jan 2022)

Robert Buckland: I pay warm tribute to the hon. Lady’s excellent personal testimony, which is so powerful. Does she agree that, now for the first time, deaf jurors will be able to have the benefit of interpretive services as a result of legislation that I helped introduce? The crucial point that she makes about interpretation has never been more important, and I am sure that my hon. Friend the Minister will...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Clause 38 - English language requirements for public sector workers (10 Nov 2015)

Robert Buckland: I am grateful to the hon. and learned Gentleman for raising an issue in which I take a personal interest—the use of British sign language and other means for deaf people to participate in all aspects of our mainstream life. To parenthesise for a moment, I am sure that he would be interested in the work that I am doing to explore why deaf people cannot serve on juries, for example. It seems...

Bills Presented — Driving Whilst Disqualified (Repeat Offenders) Bill: Mesothelioma Bill [Lords] ( 2 Dec 2013)

Robert Buckland: ...spoke with understandable passion. All of us who know something about industrial life in this country are aware that for too long we were literally in a state of ignorance. I think of industrial deafness, which affected members of my family, and of other respiratory diseases. In particular, I think of mesothelioma, and of the date of knowledge in law, which is deemed to be 1969. It is...

Defence Reforms: Deaf Children and Young People (17 Oct 2013)

Robert Buckland: ...so powerfully in his opening speech. I pay warm tribute to him for securing this debate. I was happy to support it as part of his bid to the Backbench Business Committee. As has been rightly said, deafness is not a learning disability, but it can be a real barrier to learning for the thousands of children and young people who live with it every day. Let us not forget the families of those...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Families Bill: Clause 32 - Advice and information for parents and young people (21 Mar 2013)

Robert Buckland: ...duties could be brought together, so that they make sense to the young people who use them. I mentioned communication difficulties, and I should mention in particular young people who are deaf, and who require a particular approach to be taken to the information they need to access the opportunities they deserve. I would be extremely grateful if, in his response, the Minister considered...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Families Bill: Clause 30 - Local offer for children and young people with special educational needs (21 Mar 2013)

Robert Buckland: ...transformation that we are all hoping for. In the main, the offer will be about children and young people who do not have a statement of SEN or similar provision. For example, three quarters of deaf children and just over half of children with sight loss currently do not have a statement. The local offer will be essential to improve transparency about what help will be available to them...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Families Bill: Clause 25 - Promoting integration (19 Mar 2013)

Robert Buckland: ...educational  provision “outside its area”, which is a useful inclusion, because it understands that some children and young people with what is termed low incidence special needs—say, a deaf-blind person—will often have to go outside their local area to receive a service. That is the nature of things. We cannot reasonably expect—I do not think that any family I know who have a...

Robert Buckland: .... The amendment would extend that duty to apply to all children or young people who may have special educational needs, regardless of age. The amendment has been tabled particularly in relation to deaf children. As currently drafted, the clause will apply only to deaf children in pre-school stages, but the fact is that many children become deaf later in life. I want to ensure that none of...
