Mr STEWART (LANG, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the attention of the Minister for Health been drawn to statements made at the World Health Organization's dental seminar which was held at the University of Adelaide last week to the effect that Australian dental services were 50 to 60 years behind the times? If the Minister has not seen this statement and the other recommendations of this seminar, will he undertake to have the report of proceedings examined with a view to raising the standards of dental services in Australia? In the meantime, will he take immediate steps to introduce a free dental service for children under sixteen years of age?
