HC Deb 20 November 1979 vol 974 c146W
Mr. Ernie Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how much money has been spent by the Scottish Health Education Unit in the past four years on (a) dental health education and (b) antismoking education.

Mr. Fairgrieve

Expenditure on publicity on these subjects during the past four financial years was as follows:

Dental Health
1975–76 £4,860
1976–77 £5,321
1977–78 £4,285
1978–79 £8,629
1975–76 £222,582
1976–77 £179,290
1977–78 £131,500
1978–79 £340,375

It is not possible to identify separately the cost of staff and other resources which were also devoted to these subjects during the normal work of the unit and as part of wider programmes of health education.
