Fluoridation Chemicals Exempt from Medicines Act

Thank you to everyone who put in a submission to Medsafe's request. 1,300 submissions were received in total, despite the consultation being held over the Christmas break. Unfortunately it appears that Medsafe and Health Minister Coleman did not take a blind bit of notice as Dr Coleman signed the exemption into law only 11 working days after the close of submissions (27th January 2015).

Feel free to let Dr Coleman know of your extreme disappointment jonathan.coleman@parliament.govt.nz
