Dr Francis said,

'I was very pleased to welcome Sara Pickard of Mencap Cymru to my constituency office.

I was impressed with her review of Mencap Cymru's work with young people particularly her own work in schools and colleges, raising awareness about voting and also accessible benefits information.

I undertook to raise a number of key issues with UK Ministers, particularly the Secretary of State for Wales, Rt Hon Paul Murphy MP.'
