§ Mr. Thorpe
asked the Minister of Health what amount was yielded from the £1 charge for dental treatment for the most recent and convenient accounting period; and whether, in the interests of good dental care, he will now abolish this impost.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
About £3.9 million in 1963. I would refer the hon. Member to the statement I made about National Health Service charges on 17th December last and to my reply to the hon. Member for Croydon, North-East (Mr. Weatherill) on 31st May.
