Mr. CATHCART WASON
asked the Secretary for Scotland if he has received copies of a circular issued by the Rutherglen School Board with reference to the treatment of children's teeth by a qualified dentist; whether such term "qualified" signifies a registered dental surgeon; and, if it bears this interpretation, whether doctors holding a surgical qualification and members of the Dental Corporation, who have for years enjoyed the confidence of the public, would be ostracised by the resolution of a school board?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
I have seen the circular in question. I am not able to say what interpretation the School Board of Rutherglen place upon the term "qualified dentist" but I am in communication with the board on the subject.
