Dear Minister Adams,

It is a travesty that New Zealanders who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing are unable to access the 2015 Cricket World Cup through broadcast captioning, even though people who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing and living in other countries that are participating in the Cricket World Cup, such as Australia and the United Kingdom, have full access through broadcast captioning.

Please minister, when is the progressive realisation of broadcast captioning to enable access to all New Zealanders going to be implemented?
