HC Deb 01 February 1999 vol 324 cc518-9W
Mr. Colvin

To ask the Secretary of State for Health when the forthcoming White Paper on Health is planned to be published; and if it will contain a section on dental care. [67108]

Ms Jowell

The "Our Healthier Nation" Green Paper included oral health in an indicative list of areas which might be suitable for local health improvement targets to tackle health inequalities. The consultation asked how opinion on fluoridation could best be tested at local level. The forthcoming "Our Healthier Nation" White Paper will take full account of the responses to the consultation. We plan to publish the White Paper in the spring.
