Fluoride: Drinking Water

Mike Thornton: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 10 June 2013, Official Report, column 149W, on fluoride: drinking water, whether any assessment to add fluoride to drinking water in Southampton and South West Hampshire is in place; and what reports he has received of whether any such proposal is part of an existing scheme. [161931]
Anna Soubry: Prior to April 2013 South Central Strategic Health Authority assessed the potential benefit to health if fluoride were to be added to the drinking water in Southampton and South West Hampshire, and whether it was feasible to do so.
Public Health England is continuing to review the matter.
