HC Deb 07 March 1966 vol 725 cc415-6W
Mr. Woodhouse

asked the Minister of Health whether he will take steps to ensure that all children under 17 years of age who are in full-time education should receive the same benefits under the National Health Service, in particular for dental treatment.

Mr. K. Robinson

Dental treatment is free for everybody up to age 21; children over 16, not at school, pay charges for dentures and glasses. The Government have no proposals to effect the limited change implied in the hon. Member's Question.
