§ Mr. John Smith
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what measures his Department is taking to stimulate dental health education among Scottish schoolchildren.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
Each year, the Scottish Health Education Unit co-operates with local authorities to provide all 377W school entrants, free of charge, with a dental health pack. These packs contain dental material, together with a letter to parents giving advice on the care of children's teeth and seeking their cooperation in emphasising the importance of dental care.
