Seems the minister and MP have no idea despite every major police force in the UK has a text access system already! Even some with BSL access. The primary issue is no demand for a national BSL aka 999 system from the deaf. It's 'access for access sake..' rather than an unmet demand. It should also be noted Deaf have refused to register for 999 services access on the premise hearing don't have to, so why should they? Completely missing the point the police would need to know what formats they were using to assist them.
