§ Mr. Adam Butler
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is his policy in regard to the fluoridation of public water supplies and of milk; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir K. Joseph
I regard the fluoridation of water supplies as a safe and highly effective measure for reducing dental 37W decay and it is one which I hope local health authorities will increasingly adopt. I do not believe that proposals that have been made for fluoridating milk are practicable.
