§ 70. Mr. A. Edwards
asked the Minister of Health whether the medical treatment referred to in Ministry of Health circular 1882 includes dental treatment, namely, extraction?
§ Mr. Elliot
Dental treatment falls within the scope of the health services which local authorities in receiving areas have been urged to extend to members of the evacuated priority classes. In addition, the Board of Education have asked local education authorities in a recent circular to make special arrangements, where necessary, for emergency dental treatment including extraction for school children.
