asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many schoolchildren there are per school dental officer in the Leek parliamentary constituency; and what is the comparable figure in England and Wales.

Information is not available in respect of parliamentary constituencies, but on the basis of the latest available figures there were 6,547 schoolchildren per dental officer in the area of Staffordshire Area Health Authority and 6,308 in England. A small part of the time of dental officers is taken up in the treatment of patients other than schoolchildren.
