|dc.description||1. In this case which has been at hearing for 65 days, the plaintiff, Mrs. Gladys Ryan, who resides in Dublin, challenges the constitutional validity of the Health (Fluoridation of Water Supplies) Act, 1960. This Act which I propose to call "the Act of 1960" was passed on 28th December 1960. Section 2 ot it provides that every health authority is to arrange for the fluoridation of water supplied to the public by sanitary authorities through pipes and that the Minister for Health may fix a date before which any specified health authority is to arrange for the fluoridation of water derived from a particular public water supply. Health Authority in the Act of 1960 means the Dublin Health Authority, the Waterford Health Authority, the Cork Health Authority, the Limerick Health Authority and every county council which does not appoint members to any of these four health authorities. The result is the creation of a statutory obligation binding every health authority in this country to fluoridate its water supplies coming to the public through pipes before a date to be fixed by the Minister.||en|
