A HAMPSHIRE MP is calling for the Environment Agency to study the potential effect of fluoridating Southampton’s tap water.

Chris Huhne, part of whose Eastleigh constituency will also have fluoride added to its water supplies, hopes the authority will look at the risks involved in the scheme to rivers and water courses.

The controversial plan to top up the level of fluoride in the water received by nearly 200,000 Hampshire homes from 0.08 parts per million to one part per million, was approved by health chiefs last month despite widespread public opposition.
