R (Rowley) v Minister for the Cabinet Office

In R (Rowley) v Minister for the Cabinet Office the High Court held that the UK government had failed to make a reasonable adjustment by not providing British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters for two televised Coronavirus data briefings. However for ongoing Coronavirus briefings – given the use of detailed data slides – the court held that “in-screen” BSL interpretation was enough to satisfy the reasonable adjustment duty. In the circumstances the government was not required to provide an “on-platform” interpreter.
