dedicated phone line and to develop procedural changes to support compliance with the legislation.

I am confident that the department has complied with the legislation and has been proactive in addressing this issue. Indeed, the department has been congratulated by other agencies with responsibility for the asbestos issue, WorkCover-type people, on the speed and comprehensive nature of, firstly, its contact with its tenants and, secondly, its compliance with the legislation. Mr Speaker, I do hope that that assists Mrs Burke.

Mrs Burke: Will you table the document you have read from?

MR HARGREAVES: I do not have the letter with me for tabling. I am quite happy to provide Mrs Burke with a copy as soon as I have one. I have asked for one to be delivered. As soon as it arrives, I will have it delivered to Mrs Burke. I have no difficulty with tabling it; I just do not have it.

Mrs Burke: No, just what you are reading from.

MR HARGREAVES: I do not intend to table something that I have just read into Hansard, Mr Speaker; that would be daft.
