HC Deb 09 June 1995 vol 261 c357W
Mr. Hanson

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what assessment he has made of services to autistic children and their families in Wales. [26735]

Mr. Richards

Health and local authorities are responsible for identifying individuals with autism and for the provision of appropriate services.

As part of a project to promote the development of services to people with autism in Wales, the National Autistic Society is carrying out an audit of autism-focused services. This project is supported by the Welsh Office, through the Welsh mental handicap strategy.
