HC Deb 19 June 1941 vol 372 c848W
Mr. Jackson

asked the Minister of Health whether he will arrange for a thorough trial to be made of the quality of British-made dental cement, and, if the results prove satisfactory, will he see that this cement is used by dentists under his control thus saving our currency?

Mr. E. Brown

The import of dental cement has, for some time past, been limited to small quantities of a special cement which is required for fixing appliances in cases of jaw injury and for which there is at present no completely satisfactory British substitute. Tests have already been made of a number of suggested substitutes for this special cement, and I should be glad to have a thorough test made of any others which may be submitted for trial.
