§ 21. Mr. Harvey
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the progress of the mental handicap strategy.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
Long-term plans have been approved in three counties for the development of a wide range of community-based services for mentally handicapped people. Plans for other counties are being discussed with joint planning teams. In 1983–84 we approved individual projects throughout Wales up to a full year value of £2.5 million to give each county area and the vanguard districts a good start.
