HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 c204W
117. Mr. A. Edward Davies

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether his attention has been called to the recent report of the Auditor General on the abnormally large earnings of a Scottish dentist; and whether he is satisfied that the present rates of remuneration are satisfactory.

Mr. McNeil

This Report relates to the earnings of a Scottish dentist and his assistant in the six months ended December, 1948. Since then the scale of dental fees has been reduced by approximately 20 per cent. and the current scale is again under discussion between representatives of the dental profession and officers of the Health Departments.
