HC Deb 15 July 1941 vol 373 c486W
Mr. Groves

asked the Lord President of the Council whether he is aware that dentists accused of infamous conduct in a professional respect have the charges heard by the Dental Board, but also by the General Medical Council, before whom there is another hearing, and that there is a final appeal to the courts; and why the right of appeal is not permited to doctors except on a point of law?

Sir J. Anderson

I am aware that the provisions of the Dentists' Act, 1921, differ from those governing the medical profession but that is as Parliament has thought fit to enact.
