HC Deb 01 May 1922 vol 153 c980
92. Lieut.-Colonel CROFT

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the neglectful manner in which the Dental Board are dealing with applications for registry which have extended over months; whether, after letters have been sent and satisfactorily answered, the same letters as the originals are sent out by the Board months afterwards; whether, instead of speedily completing the registry, applicants are kept in suspense; and what steps he intends to take to remedy this state of affairs?


I have not received any previous complaints of this kind. I have no jurisdiction over the administration of the Dental Board, but if the hon. and gallant Member will let me have particulars of the cases to which he refers, I will have inquiry made. I may add that the rules made by the Board require the names of applicants to be published for a month before admission to the register.
