Some of the DEX Deaf Youth Council went to meet John McDonnell, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, last week.

The meeting was held by Jon Trickett MP (he is on the left of the photo).

Jon and John McDonnell have promised to introduce a government Bill for BSL recognition and promotion if the Labour Party wins the next election.

John’s grandparent was deaf and his father signed. John says he knows a few old Liverpool signs!
