§ 69. Mr. PENNEFATHER
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he will state how many hospitals there are in this country where jaw injuries which have been suffered by our soldiers can be treated by general surgeons and dental surgeons acting in concurrent collaboration, and how many of such hospitals have been established by the French surgical and dental authorities; and whether he is aware that serious jaw injuries can be better treated by general surgeons and dental surgeons acting in concurrent collaboration than by ordinary surgical treatment?
§ Mr. TENNANT
In all hospital centres arrangements have been made for jaw injuries to be treated by general surgeons and dental surgeons, acting in concurrent collaboration. I am unable to say how many special hospitals have been established in France. As regards the last part of the question, my medical advisers are fully aware that cases of the kind in question are best treated by surgeons and dental surgeons acting in collaboration.
