§ 31. Mr. Younger
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what action he will take to assist the dental profession in Scotland, in view of the loss of investment allowances for dental equipment and its ineligibility for the new investment grants.
§ Mr. Younger
Does not the hon. Lady agree, however, that these dentists—particularly young dentists—will be 10 per cent. worse off as a result of the new arrangements? Does she not agree that it is a very bad thing that young people starting out in their profession should have to face this additional hazard?
§ Mrs. Hart
This is exactly the question with which the Chief Secretary was dealing. It is only remuneration before tax which is a matter for the health Ministers, so I am afraid that the hon. Gentleman must await his luck to see whether he is here after the election to put that question to my right hon. Friend.
