§ Mrs. Roche
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what proportion of the people living in the family health service authority covering Hornsey and Wood Green are currently registered as national health service dental patients; and what is the figure for Britain as a whole.
§ Dr. Mawhinney
As patients are free to register with a dentist outside the family health services authority area where they live the information requested is not available. At 30 April 1994 the proportion of the population registered with a dentist in Great Britain was 57.8 per cent.
