Mr REYNOLDS (BARTON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Minister for Health read that section of the second report of the Committee on Teaching Costs of Medical Hospitals which deals with dental schools and hospitals? If so, did he particularly note the references to the alarming position regarding the supply of dentists in Australia, the absence of research facilities and the departure of so many dentists to practise in the United Kingdom? Is anything to be done by the Government to remedy the situation? More particularly, what progress has been made in the deplorably long consideration being given to the inclusion of dental services within the national health scheme?
