Mr. CATHCART WASON
asked how many registered dental practitioners there are in Ireland and what provision is made for dental inspection in schools?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
I am informed that there are about 200 registered dentists in Ireland. A sum of £5,000 has been included in the Estimates for public education, Ireland, for the purposes of dental 551W inspection in schools. The general principle on which the money is disbursed is a Grant of £1 for each £1 of local contribution towards the total cost of dental inspection under each approved scheme.
