HC Deb 24 February 2003 vol 400 c362W
Mr. Brady

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the compatibility of fluoridation of the public water supply with the European Convention on Human Rights. [96811]

Ms Blears

In our view fluoridation is compatible with the Convention. It is a valuable health measure and fluoridation schemes can only be implemented where the local population has been consulted and have indicated their support.
