Fluoride Position

We note the range of views on the use of fluoride. We oppose the Health (Fluoridation of Drinking Water) Amendment Bill currently before Parliament and, instead, will ensure that any decision by a local authority to fluoridate a water supply must only be given effect to if supported by a binding referendum of votes in that local authority's area.

We will further require that every local authority that currently fluoridates it's water supply holds a binding referendum at the 2022 council elections on whether to continue fluoridating its water supply.
