HC Deb 19 June 1973 vol 858 c78W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when the Water Act has become operative, if he will list the rights individual local authorities will have to decide on supplementing the water supply with fluoride; what special arrangements can be made when local authorities served by one source reach different conclusions; and if he will make a statement.

Sir K. Joseph

The Water Act will not change the position on fluoridation so far as the rôles of water undertakings and health authorities are concerned.
