Campaign Responses

Campaign Response for Alex Belfield

Thank you for contacting me about Alex Belfield, and indeed for bringing this issue to my attention.

Whilst I am not able to comment specifically and in detail on the case you have mentioned, as a general principle, it is important that the law protects freedom of speech.

Campaign Response for the BT Strike

Thank you for contacting me about BT.

Following disagreements about potential job cuts and site closures, I understand that the Communication Workers Union (CWU) will hold a ballot on possible industrial action.

Campaign Response for Blessing Olusegun

Thank you for contacting me about the death of Blessing Olusegun.

Blessing’s death was incredibly tragic and my sympathies remain with her friends and family.

Campaign Response for British Sign Language (BSL)

Thank you for contacting me about making British Sign Language (BSL) an official language of the UK.

Deafness or being hard of hearing should not be a barrier to participating in society and I understand your desire to see BSL as an official language of the UK.
