ID: A white greeting card with the words "Rosie Cooper MP BSL Bill 2022", handwritten in silver calligraphy. There is a watercolour illustration of the houses of parliament inside a circle in the centre. This card was presented to Rosie by the British Deaf Association, with whom she successfully campaigned alongside to pass the British Sign Language Act. As a child of Deaf parents, growing up in Liverpool, Rosie Cooper has advocated tirelessly for the advancement of D/deaf people. Whilst serving as an MP for West Lancashire, Rosie introduced the British Sign Language Bill in 2021. It was passed in 2022, becoming the British Sign Language Act. Crucially, the Act legally recognises BSL as a language in England, Scotland and Wales.
