HC Deb 06 November 1980 vol 991 c645W
Mr. Cyril D. Townsend

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how much extra revenue will now be raised following the modifications made to the Department's proposals for doing away with the exemption from dental charges for young people.

Sir George Young

Removal of the existing exemption from dental charges on 1 April 1981 for those aged 18 to 20 years who have left school, except for those exempt on low income grounds, is expected to raise an additional £6.5 million—at survey 1979 prices—in England in 1981–82.
