§ Mr. F. Taylor
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the incidence of death before reaching retiring age and serious illness amongst dentists is higher than in any other profession; what action has been taken to ascertain the cause of this; and what action he proposes to take in the light of these facts.
§ Mr. Braine
My right hon. Friend is not aware that the available figures for occupational mortality support my hon. Friend's assumption. We have no information on the incidence of serious illness among dentists.
