Member of Parliament for Ho West, Emmanuel Kwesi Bedzrah has thanked the Speaker of Parliament Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye for the innovation of introducing sign language in the chamber.

On Tuesday when the House resume from its three months recess, there was an introduction of on-screen display of activities in the House including contributions and debates of members on issues.

Added to it was a small blue screen at the lower corner where a man could be seen doing the sign language, interpreting proceedings to those who need.

Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu called on the Communications department of the House to ensure that the sing language does not cover the big screens in Parliament.

He pointed out that when the Speaker was delivering his open remarks, the person on the screen doing the interpretations had covered a large portion of the screen and should be adjusted properly, as he commend the Speaker for the novelty.

“Mr. Speaker you have paid your due to person with disability to appreciate the work we do, I am sure our brothers and sisters in the world of disability would appreciate the working that you are doing to get workings of Parliament close to them”.
