HC Deb 25 February 1986 vol 92 c540W
Mr. Michie

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what assessment his Department has made of the effect on patients' choice of treatments of increases in dental charges; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hayhoe

No such assessment has been made and it would be very difficult to undertake as the charge is only one of many factors which might affect a patient's choice of treatment.
