HC Deb 20 March 1973 vol 853 cc38-9W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the number of schoolchildren per school dental officer in the Leek parliamentary constituency in Staffordshire and in England and Wales, respectively.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

For England and Wales 5,996; this allows for time spent by school dental officers on the treatment of children under five and of expectant and nursing mothers. The information is not collected by the Department in respect of parliamentary constituencies and the Staffordshire local education authority should be consulted about the comparable figure for Leek.
