HC Deb 16 November 1951 vol 493 c73W
Squadron Leader Cooper

asked the Minister of Education if she will give the number of school dental officers employed by local authorities per month from January 1951 to the most convenient date.

Mr. Pickthorn:

The latest figures available are those showing the position at the beginning of last January, when the number of dentists in the school dental service was equivalent to 717 full-time officers. Figures showing the present position are being collected and my right hon. Friend will send them to my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as she has them.
