MP calls for better church facilities for visually impaired
Comment Email Print
 Member of Parliament Frank Field has appealed for churches of all denominations to provide improved facilities for blind and visually-impaired people. In his Early Day Motion 747, Mr Field asks: 'That this House supports the campaign of the Church and Blindness Action Group to ensure that churches (Anglican, Catholic, and Free) across the country are suitably equipped places for blind and visually impaired people to worship through inexpensive measures such as stating the first line of each hymn, clearly marking steps, providing Braille and large-print versions of texts; notes that the current large-print Book of Common Prayer is illegible for most visually impaired people; and supports the Church and Blindness Action Group in their efforts to provide both Braille and legible large-print copies in every church.'
