HC Deb 30 June 1993 vol 227 cc533-4W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what assessment he has made concerning the number of required housing places needed by people with learning disabilities in Wales in each of the next five years.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

Social services departments' own estimates are that a minimum of 90 places will be required in Wales for each year for individuals in the community needed to move into accommodation of their own. In addition, we are intending to resettle 110 individuals from long-stay hospitals in 1993–94 and 1994–95. Resettlement programmes have yet to be finalised for subsequent years.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

The number of domestic water disconnections is set out in the table. Information on the number of industrial water disconnections is not held centrally. Separate figures for domestic only disconnections are not available prior to 1989–90.
