HC Deb 29 October 1956 vol 558 c110W
107. Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the cost to public funds of the treatment, accorded under the National Health Service at Dundee Dental Hospital in September, to a number of Egyptian educationists who spent 11 days in Scotland as guests of the British Council; how many of these aliens took advantage of this free treatment ; and what reciprocal arrangements exist for free dental treatment of British subjects visiting the Republic of Egypt.

Mr. J. Stuart

Four members of the party received temporary fillings, and one permanent fillings under the normal arrangements for temporary residents in this country. The treatments were given by university dental students working under supervision. The precise cost to public funds is not readily identifiable but was very small. There are no reciprocal arrangements for dental care for British subjects visiting Egypt.
