HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 cc179-80W
27. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Minister of Health whether he will authorise the direct use by the public under the National Health Service of the facilities afforded by denture repair undertakings.

69. Mr. Keeling

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the unforeseen cost of the National Dental Service and his own efforts to reduce dentists' hours of work, he will investigate the resources of the dental repair firms and consider how far they can help to meet the large unsatisfied demand for dental treatment.

Mr. Bevan

No. The National Health Service Act provides that dental services under the Act shall be given by registered dental practitioners.
