§ Mr. Hornby
asked the Minister of Health how long dentists in the National Health Service normally have to wait before receiving permission from the Dental Estimates Board to carry out treatment that requires the Board's approval; and how long normally elapses between receipt by his Department of an appeal against a decision of the Dental Estimates Board and the publication of a decision on the appeal.
§ Mr. Powell
The Board replies in two or three days normally and within ten days in more complex cases. Six to eight weeks.
