§ 42. Mr. W. BAKER
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that after the Isle of Wight Education Authority had prepared a dental treatment scheme, at the urgent request of the Board, the whole scheme has been held up as a result of Circular 1371 and the subsequent Memorandum issued by his Department; and whether, seeing that the local authority have made every possible economy, he will authorise them to proceed with the scheme.
§ Lord E. PERCY
I am considering this project in connection with the revised Estimates for 1926–27, and hope to be able to communicate my decision to the authority very shortly.
§ Mr. R. S. HUDSON
Is it the fact that, in spite of the alleged action of Circular 1371 and Memorandum 44, the Estimates this year show a considerable increase over last year?
Will the Noble Lord remember, before he turns down dental treatment, the lamentable condition of the teeth of the men who offered for the Army in 1914?
