HC Deb 01 March 1973 vol 851 c423W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what was the average number of teeth extracted per full-time dental officer in the school dental service in 1971; and what was the comparable figure in the county of Stafford.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

835 and 1,050 respectively: some allowance has been made in these figures for staffing fluctuations during the year and the work of dental auxiliaries is included.
