HC Deb 26 March 1975 vol 889 cc196-7W
Mr. Lomas

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if she will make a statement of guidance for those responsible on the advantages, or otherwise, of fluoride being added to water.

Dr. Owen

Fluoridation is a fully established public health measure for protection against dental decay, and the Health Departments have published detailed evidence of its safety and effectiveness in the reports of "The Fluoridation Studies in the United Kingdom and the Results Achieved after Five and Eleven years respectively" (Reports on Public Health and Medical Subjects Nos. 105 and 122).
