23.

asked the Minister of Health which public health authorities have decided to add fluoride to water supplies; which have decided not to; and which have decided to provide fluoride in other forms to parents wishing thus to protect their children's teeth.

With permission, I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT lists of the authorities based on the latest information available to me. I have not authorised local health authorities to provide fluoride other than in water supplies.Following is the information:
