asked the Minister of Health whether he will give details showing how the various fees included in the total amount of £43,048,000, which was payable to dentists during the financial year 1949–50 were divided between fees for extractions, provision of new dentures, dental examinations, and dental conservative treatment, respectively.

Full information in this detail is not available. But, on the basis of a sample, it is estimated that the total cost may be divided as follows:

  • Examinations, 5 per cent.
  • Extractions, 6 per cent.
  • Dentures, 61 per cent.
  • Conservative work, 28 per cent.
