Hampshire Against Fluoridation
Hampshire County Council Debate on Water Fluoridation
Thursday 18th July at 10am. Public Welcome to Attend.

Fluoridation is item 12 on Hampshire County Council's meeting next week. The following motion has been put forward by Cllr Stallard and seconded by Cllr Carter:

"This Council notes that the recommendations on proposals for the fluoridation of drinking water in Southampton and South West Hampshire, as agreed by all political groups at full Council on 20th November 2008, Item 9, Minute 345, remain still to be addressed.  Accordingly the Council reaffirms its position, primarily that the addition of fluoride to water supplies is not adopted until such time that clear evidence of benefit and no harm from mass medication has been established and that Public Health England be advised accordingly".

The council meeting is on Thursday 18th July at 10am and will be held at The Castle, Winchester and is open to the public.

It would be good for some supporters of HAF to make an appearance on the day.

The important issue now is whether Public Health England has the authority to progress fluoridation from the defunct SCSHA in its aim to introduce it in 2014.
