HC Deb 16 July 1984 vol 64 cc27-8W
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.
