Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 4 Hansard (27 March) . . Page.. 1319..

Few of us, I am sure, have management plans for our homes. Few of us even know where the asbestos might be.

The government's updated asbestos website at, which I launched today, provides information and offers guidelines for dealing with asbestos safely.

Opposition members interjecting—

DR BOURKE: It is not a laughing matter.

MR SPEAKER: Mr Doszpot.

MR DOSZPOT: Mr Speaker, my understanding is that the minister was going to table the plans for the asbestos replacement program.

Mr Hargreaves: On a point of order, Mr Speaker, under what standing order has Mr Doszpot been given leave to stand?

MR SPEAKER: Right now I am operating on indulgence for Mr Doszpot because I think he is trying to clarify something. Mr Doszpot.

MR DOSZPOT: Thank you. My understanding is that the minister was going to provide a list of the schools that were part of the replacement program for asbestos. He has mentioned a lot of information regarding that, but there is still not a list of the schools scheduled for this replacement program, as I understand it.

MR SPEAKER: Minister, do you wish to add any further information?

DR BOURKE: Mr Speaker, I clarify for the member: the plans are being printed. They will be here by the close of business as agreed.
