HC Deb 16 October 1990 vol 177 c793W
96. Mr. John Greenway

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what recent discussions he has held with the British Dental Association about the future for general dental practitioners' services.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

I met the general dental services committee of the British Dental Association on 12 July, when we agreed that the new contract for general dental practitioners would be introduced on 1 October, and that the proposals were in the best interests of patients, dentists and dentistry.
