§ Lord Colwyn
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What representations they have received about the proposal of Richmond, Twickenham and Roehampton District Health Authority to close half of the community dental service clinics in the district.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health and Social Security (Lord Glenarthur)
The Richmond, Twickenham and Roehampton Health Authority has received representations from a number of local bodies which have been consulted about the proposed reduction of community dental services and will be considering the outcome of this consultation at the next meeting of the Health Authority. In addition, the British Dental Association has written to my department about this.
