I have no responsibility for the prices charged by commercial dental laboratories for dentures and other prosthetic work or for the wages of dental technicians employed by them. Wages are negotiated through the appropriate joint negotiating body. As regards the last part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour on 12th July, 1965, to the hon. Member for Westhoughton (Mr. J. T. Price).
Even if my right hon. Friend has no technical responsibility, is not he aware that there is a great deal of feeling, and will he discuss with his right hon. Friend what can be done about it?
