HC Deb 06 April 1971 vol 815 cc62-3W
28. Mr. David Stoddart

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he anticipates any diminution of job opportunities for dental practitioners or a falling-off in the numbers of students in dentistry as a result of higher charges for dental treatment.

Sir K. Joseph

No. I do not expect any significant interruption of the long-term trend for the number of courses of treatment to increase.
