asked Her Majesty's Government:Further to the Written Answers by Lord Hunt of Kings Heath on 17 January (

WA 136), which stated that financial contributions will continue to be made to the British Fluoridation Society:

  • (a) whether it is part of that society's aims to promote water fluoridation; and, if so,
  • (b) whether it is a suitably impartial body to collect and maintain "relevant information, including evidence from research studies on the effects of fluoridation." [HL453]

    It has been the policy of successive governments to support the fluoridation of water and the British Fluoridation Society has been responsive to that policy. The society has both a promotional role and an information gathering function. I have asked the society to ensure that it produces objective, evidence based information when responding to enquiries.
