§ Lieut.-Colonel MASON
asked the Minister of Health how long the unqualified dental dressers, employed under the Ministry of Education in Derbyshire and Shropshire, will be permitted to continue in practice?
§ Mr. N. CHAMBERLAIN
The conditions under which dental dressers may be employed in the school dental service have been formulated in a circular issued by the Board of Education after consultation between the Dental Board and the Ministry of Health. In order to allow time for the arrangements in Derbyshire and Shropshire to be reorganised in conformity with the new conditions, permission was granted to the local education authorities of these counties to continue the employment of their existing dental dressers without modification up to the end of the present year.
