Commander WEDGWOOD

asked the Secretary of State for War whether there is now any regular dental personnel and equipment laid down for His Majesty's Army; and how many qualified dentists, how many dental equipments, how many vuleanisers, and how many dental assistants or artificers are there now attached to the Expeditionary Forces in Egypt, Salonika, Mesopotamia, and East Africa, respectively?


There is no fixed regular scale of dental personnel or equipment laid down for His Majesty's Army; but provision for dental treatment has been made, and all demands have been fully met. The equipment has been standardised with the advice of dental experts.
