HC Deb 01 May 1973 vol 855 c262W
29. Mr. Spriggs

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what communications he has received from the British Dental Association about the joint working party with his Department; and whether dentistry will be represented on the management team at a regional level.

Sir K. Joseph

The association wrote to me on 19th February and I met its representatives on 14th March. In the reorganised National Health Service dental officers, while not full members of the regional and area management teams, will have the right to attend any meeting when matters affecting dentistry are to be discussed.
