asked the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) how many dental laboratories in Scotland have stopped carrying out work for the National Health Service since March, 1971;

(2) how many National Health Service dental laboratories in Scotland have closed down since March, 1971.

This information is not available; but estimates authorised for payment by the Scottish Dental Estimates Board between March, 1971, and February suggest that there was an increase in treatments involving the services of dental laboratories.
