Aylesbury MP backs new British Sign Language lawIn a speech to Parliament on Friday 18th March, Rob Butler MP name-checked Stoke Mandeville Combined School, which has special facilities for hearing impaired pupils.

On a visit to the school Mr Butler was impressed with the way deaf students were integrated into the school community.

Mr Butler added: “It is incredibly moving to see how those children play a full part in the life of the school.

"And more importantly, that all the children who are not hearing-impaired recognise this is just a normal part of life: a different way to communicate, with different people, with different needs, but who are ultimately all exactly the same as they are.”
