§ Mr. Richards
Every two years the British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry conducts a sample survey of dental caries prevalence in children aged five throughout Great Britain. From the results of these surveys it is estimated that the mean percentage of five-year-old children in Wales for whom there was evidence of caries experience in 1989–90 was 57 per cent. in 1991–92 it was 59 per cent. and in 1993–94, the latest year for which information is available, it was 54 per cent. Information for 1995–96 is not yet available.
