§ 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 Anti-smoking 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.
