asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will indicate what categories of staff trainees in assisting mentally handicapped people have been found to be in shortage in Wales leading to delays in the implementation of the all-Wales strategy for mentally handicapped people; and what steps he is taking to try and overcome such shortages.
