HC Deb 01 March 1978 vol 945 cc251-2W
Mr. Patrick Jenkin

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many water authorities, as a proportion of the whole, in those health areas which have agreed to the principle of fluoridation of water have not implemented the fluoridation policy; and what reasons they have given for this.

Mr. Denis Howell

No central records are kept of the decisions of individual water authorities on requests from area health authorities to add fluoride to

for attracting employment and industry to the inner city. The Committee has agreed to my proposal for a joint working party with the co-operation of the owners of the plant to examine possible alternative uses and to seek potential users for it.
