Question S3W-34720

To ask the Scottish Executive whether it has made assessments of the available online interpreting services for deaf people.

Alex Neil MSP: The Scottish Government funded a small pilot of online interpreting services in 2007-08 to see if an online interpreting service could be delivered successfully. From the pilot and our knowledge of other services which are being developed, we believe that online services will undoubtedly continue to develop and this will be led by market forces.
