§ 59. Mr. Ivor Thomas
asked the Minister of Health whether, in recasting the medical services of the country, he will consider the abolition of the three-year waiting period before dental benefits can be received under National Health Insurance?
Not only this point, but the whole position of dental services in any comprehensive service of health is being fully considered.
§ Mr. Thomas
Has my right hon. Friend considered the representations made by the Dental Association on this question?
§ Mr. Wakefield
Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind the need for extending the dental service for young people in their teens, who do not now get dental service because they are at work and not at school?
