HC Deb 07 December 1939 vol 355 cc818-9
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.
