HC Deb 16 February 1977 vol 926 c224W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what would be the extra cost to his Department of allowing the community dental service, under permissive powers, to use any spare capacity in any locality to treat mentally handicapped or physically disabled persons requiring dental care.

Mr. Moyle

I regret that it is not possible to estimate what might be the extra cost.
