P-04-481 Close the Gap for deaf pupils in Wales - Correspondence from the Petitioner to the Committee, 04.07.17


I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Petitions Committee for its persistence in taking forward key issues raised within NDCS Cymru’s Close the Gap petition.

The recent response to the Petitions Committee from the Minister for Lifelong Learning and Welsh Language re our petition demonstrates that there is still significant work to be done in effecting positive change for deaf children and young people in Wales.  I would, therefore, be grateful if you would liaise with his diary secretary, as he suggests, to arrange a meeting for us to progress discussion of the issues raised.

With thanks,



Jayne Dulson
Director, Wales
