asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how much was collected in 1984–85 in National Health Service dental charges for crowns, for dentures and for other treatment, listed separately, for England; and how much is expected to be collected under the same headings in 1985–86.

[pursuant to his reply, 1 April 1985, c. 498]: Precise figures for the breakdown of the yield from charges into the three categories requested are not readily available but the estimated yield from charges in England in the financial year 1984–85 and the projected yield for 1985–86 (assuming their application to all chargeable courses of treatment completed in the year) for certain groups of dental treatments is as follows:
