§ 99. Mr. Osborne
asked the Minister of Education if she is aware that there are less than the equivalent of two dentists for a child population of 35,000 in North Lincolnshire; and how long will it be before the medical provisions of the Education Act, 1944, can be fully implemented.
§ Mr. Hardman
In the Lindsey area there are four dentists giving 80 per cent. of their time to the school dental service, and the authority plan, in due course, to appoint six further dentists to the staff. The full implementation of the medical provisions of the Education Act, 1944, must depend on the progress of the health services generally.
