HC Deb 07 March 1955 vol 538 cc1-2W
35. Mr. Awbery

asked the Minister of Health what joint machinery has been set up for fixing the remuneration of the general dental practitioner; and what procedure is adopted in cases of a failure to agree.

Mr. Iain Macleod

The remuneration of general dental practitioners is fixed by Regulations, after consultation between the Health Departments and the profession. The procedure for dealing with disputes is set out in Section 13 of the National Health Service (Amendment) Act, 1949.
