asked the Minister of Education what steps he is taking to ensure that there will be adequate dental equipment to meet a substantial expansion of the school dental service in the next few years.
§ Mr. K. Thompson
The equipment of school dental clinics is a matter for the responsible local education authority. The Ministry's medical officers visit the clinics and give guidance where necessary. I am satisfied that in general the school dental service is satisfactorily equipped to take advantage of the foreseeable growth of the service.
