HC Deb 16 November 1959 vol 613 c94W
56. Miss Lee

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.
