§ Colonel DAY
asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that of 2,000,000 school children inspected in 1924, 67 per cent. of whom were found to be in need of dental treatment,, only 55 per cent. received such treatment; and will he state what action is contemplated in order to deal with those not receiving dental care?
§ Lord E. PERCY
I assume that the hon. Member refers to the statement on page 66 of the Report of the Board's chief medical officer for the year 1924. As regards the second part of the question, this is one of the matters that local authorities have doubtless been considering in connection with their programmes.
