Suggested amendment

leave out from 'House' to end and add, 'congratulates Her Majesty's Government on the considerable expansion in the NHS dental services since 1979,including a 43 per cent. increase in real terms spending and a 27 per cent. increase in the number of dentists; considers that an average income for dentists of around ú40,000 is reasonable, bearing in mind that this is still some ú5,000 above the Doctors and Dentists Review Body recommendation which itself was an 8.5 per cent increase (3. 8 per cent. in real terms.);and calls upon the dental profession to forward recommendations for a more equitable spread of net income for dentists within the same national fund.'.

Original motion text

That this House condemns the Government for pursuing policies that have led to an emerging crisis in National Health Service dentistry; notes the increasing difficulties experienced in many parts of the country in obtaining registration as National Health Service dental patients because of the growing number of dentists that have been driven to withdraw National Health dental services through a deliberate policy of underpricing the new dental contract; warns that further and rapid deterioration will take place if the government fulfils its intention of cutting dental fees further; condemns the pursuit of a backdoor policy of privatisation of dentistry through underfunding and higher patient charges; and commends the General Dental Practitioners Association for drawing this serious situation to the nation's attention.
