UK Against Fluoridation

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

UK - Hampshire County Council

Hampshire County Council and Public Health England are on course to
battle one another in the High Court over the issue of water
fluoridation in tap water.

At the Health Overview & Scrutiny Committee of Hampshire County Council
today, Councillor David Harrison, Opposition Spokesman for Health,
asked whether private discussions at officer level between the two
organisations had yielded any result. The answer is "No". Officers now
believe that the matter will now very likely be determined by the High
Court at a future date.

Hampshire County Council have obtained legal advice which supports the
view that Public Health England are not permitted to proceed with a
scheme earlier followed by the Strategic Health Authority (now

Public Health England however, seem set on progressing it, despite the
result of a consultation showing that over 70% of the public expressing
a view are "against".

Councillor Harrison says "This is a monumental waste of public money.
Lawyers must be rubbing their hands with glee at the prospect of an
expensive High Court hearing, funded on both sides by the public purse.
Public Health England are acting disgracefully. They have no mandate to
medicate the population by compulsion. The fact that they are using
taxpayers money in an effort to impose this makes it worse still".

David Harrison
