HC Deb 15 December 1958 vol 597 cc149-50W
84. Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Health the result of his consideration of the recommendation by the County Executive Council on 10th September, that a Kent dentist should be fined £1,500 and removed from the dental list on the grounds that he had claimed fees for work not done, and had failed to give proper treatment, after having been found guilty and fined on five previous occasions; and, in view of this record, if he will give the name of the dentist concerned.

Mr. Walker-Smith

The hon. Member is mistaken in thinking that the Executive Council has represented that the dentist should be removed from the dental list. My consideration of the recommended withholding of remuneration is not yet complete, and it would therefore be improper for me to comment upon the case.
