HC Deb 04 February 1960 vol 616 c156W
21. Mr. A. E. Cooper

asked the Minister of Education if he will state the number of whole-time dentists engaged in the School Dental Service at the most convenient date; and how this compares with the same date in 1950.

Mr. K. Thompson

Local education authorities make extensive use of part-time dentists in the School Dental Service. In June, 1959, the dentists employed in the School Dental Service in England and Wales were equivalent to 1,029 full-time dentists compared with 739 in June, 1950.
