The responsibility will be transferred to local authorities, and they will have the same obligation to consult their population as exists in the present legislation. In my view, local authorities are more accountable to the population that they serve than strategic health authorities have been in the past.

Well, Secretary of State,that means that under the Water Act 2003, Local Authorities will have to have a consultation, but like in the case of that in Southampton's with their Strategic Health Authority, LAs can disreguard these views even when 96% of the Public consulted were agianst, and compulsorly fluoridate everyones' water;
Amazing! Why not withdraw this section of the Water Act 2003, or better agree that Fluoridation is unethical, outdated, unlawful and unsafe, as it clearly is, and then save the NHS £ millions a year in 10% of the UK by stoping this dangerous and ineffective and unjustified intervention at this time of cuts?
