This decision was taken despite massive local opposition to the plan. I have written to Cllr David Drew, chair of Test Valley’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee stating that

“In doing this they ignored local opinion, the representations of Hampshire County Council,┬áno votes by Test Valley and Eastleigh Borough Councils and similar no votes from town and parish council in the area.”

“Given the strong vote against fluoridation by Test Valley Borough Council will you please consider calling a representative of the South Central Strategic Health Authority to explain their decision to the Overview and Scrutiny Committee.”

I look forward to his response.
