Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
Acquisition and sales statistics are regularly reported in the Quarterly Report: Implementation of the Loose Fill Asbestos Insulation Eradication Scheme. The Scheme has continued to report regularly to the Assembly, through the website http://www.asbestostaskforce.act.gov.au/ and as required via media requests.
The Taskforce has been mindful both of the accountability expected by the community, but also the privacy of the affected householders. The most up to date information is available at http://www.asbestostaskforce.act.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/1176385/ARTDemolitionSchedulemap-20180309-ProgressMap.pdf
Further, I have attached a spreadsheet of data in response to your questions. This data has been broken down to a suburb level where available.
