HC Deb 08 November 1934 vol 293 c1286W

asked the Minister of Health whether and, if so, when the Dental Benefit Joint Committee propose to issue a fresh edition of the Dental Benefit Handbook of 1927?


The Dental Benefit Joint Committee, which was a voluntary non-statutory body, ceased to exist on 31st December, 1928, 'and, subject to my general control, the arrangements for the provision of dental benefit are now in the hands of a statutory body known as the Dental Benefit Council set up in accordance with Regulations made under Section 16 of the 'National Health Insurance Act, 1928. These Regulations also contain provisions for the administration of the benefit, including the scale of fees and conditions of service, and they replace the Dental Benefit Handbook, which will consequently not be re-issued.
