2011 census consultation

You may remember from this post, the 2011 test census for the UK included a question about BSL, and another about deafness.

The consultation deadline has been extended to the 31 March 2007. The consultation questionnaire and documents can be downloaded online, and there's open meetings today in London, Sheffield and Cardiff. Given this focuses in part on the inclusion of minority languages, one has to wonder if interpreters will be made available at the events and secondly, why information about this consultation wasn't made available in languages other than English to begin with? Where was the outreach to these communities?

Because of these lack of measures, one has to wonder if consultation will be fair, and such questions not eventually excluded to please the majority.
