No charges will be brought against two senior officials at the DHSS, following a complaint relating to information in a government produced pro-fluoridation leaflet.

Well-known campaigner on ‘green’ issues Graham Joughin called for action against the pair, claiming the leaflet contained ‘misleading descriptions’ under a section of the 2003 Medicines Act.

Police referred his letter to the Attorney General, but the Chief Minister has now confirmed the Isle of Man Constabulary will not be investigating the matter.

The information is in a written reply to a Tynwald question from Onchan MHK Peter Karran.

A month ago the DHSS announced that, following public consultation, it would not be pursuing a policy of fluoridating the Island’s water supply.
