§ Mr. Blenkinsop
asked the Minister of Health whether he will take into account the effect of the Selective Employment Tax on dentists' earnings in the National Health Service.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
Yes; the payment of the tax will count as part of the dentists' practice expenses which are reimbursed through their fees, so far as they relate to practice under the general dental services. The effect of the tax will be taken into account in fixing the level of fees for the current year.
