HC Deb 18 February 1957 vol 565 c12W
102. Mr. N. Pannell

asked the Minister of Health, as representing the Lord President of the Council, when regulations will be introduced which will make it possible for those foreign dentists whose degrees or diplomas are not as yet accepted as sufficient qualification for registration to qualify by special examination.

Mr. Vosper

The General Dental Council has submitted regulations to the Privy Council for approval. An amendment of the regulations to accord with the views of Parliament that the examination might be mainly practical has been suggested to the Council for consideration at its next meeting on 27th March and I hope it will then be possible for the regulations to be approved and introduced.
