Deaf Australia is aware that Auslan Corporation Ltd, also known as the Sign Language Council, which was registered as a company earlier this year by Goran Nikolic and Llewellyn Jones, have posted on social media and on their website copies of proposed legislation relating to the regulation of Australian Sign Language (Auslan) and are alleged to have been submitted to Parliament.
