§ Mr. Pavitt
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has now completed his examination of ways to follow up the Royal Commission recommendation in paragraphs 9.74 page 123 to establish a small committee to review dental health policy; and if he will make a statement.
§ Dr. Vaughan
I refer the hon. Member to my reply to him on 4 August 1980—[Vol. 990, c.55–6.]—and to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge (Mr. Shersby) on 28 November 1980 on the formation of the dental strategy review group.
I understand that the group is meeting regularly, and it expects to be able to report around the middle of this year.
