§ Mr. Lubbock
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many places were filled in the dental schools during 1961; how many students sat their final examination and how many obtained their licentiateship to practise dentistry.
§ Sir E. Boyle
Of the 3,047 full-time dental students in dental schools at the beginning of the academic year 1961–62, 663 had just entered on their course for 17W the first time. At the end of the academic year 1960–61, 336 students obtained the degree of Bachelor of Dental Surgery, and a further 198 gained the Licentiate of Dental Surgery, making a total of 534.
I regret that figures of the total numbers sitting final examinations in these studies are not available.
