asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to a report indicating that the percentage of London children of five years of age with caries-free teeth has decreased considerably since 1947; what reports on this subject he has received from other parts of England and Wales; and if he will cause an inquiry to be made as to the reason for this deterioration and how it can be prevented.
