§ Sir Anthony Meyer
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what communication he has received from the Wales Council for the Disabled regarding the Bodelwyddan resources centre for disabled people; and what reply he has sent.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
A letter has been received from the Wales Council for the Disabled, acting as the secretariat 317W for the Bodelwyddan resources centre, seeking support and advice in respect of the proposed development of a resource centre for disabled people. The reply sent on my behalf notes the strength of local support for the project which could provide a good opportunity for local voluntary organisations to complement the work of the statutory agencies in the area. The letter emphasised that, as such a centre would provide a local or sub-regional service, we would expect it to be funded from local sources.
