HC Deb 10 November 2003 vol 413 c132W
Chris Grayling

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on his plans to add fluoride to water. [133787]

Miss Melanie Johnson

[holding answer 23 October 2003]: The Government has no plans to add fluoride to the water supply on a national basis. Clause 61 of the Water Bill, if enacted, will enable strategic health authorities to undertake local consultations about whether the populations that they serve are in favour.
