HC Deb 16 March 1950 vol 472 cc1237-8
20. Mr. Albu

asked the Minister of Health what instructions he has given to health executive committees on the treatment by dentists of cases of emergency.

Mr. Bevan

I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of a circular which was sent to executive councils when a simplified procedure for emergency dental treatment was introduced.

Mr. Albu

Is my right hon. Friend aware that there are still some dentists who refuse to have emergency patients without payment?

Mr. Bevan

There are some instances where dentists still behave in a most unprofessional manner.

Mr. Mitchison

Would my right hon. Friend arrange for copies of that circular to be made available in the Library?

Mr. Bevan
