Quotable Quotes

QUOTE 1: A caller to the Lead Advisory Service Australia (LASA) rang to ask the questions: "Why is lead permitted in auto paint if it's so dangerous? Making lead sinkers on the barbecue at home won't hurt will it?" He also made the comment: "You [LASA] get a gold star for phone advice compared to NSW Poisons Info and WorkCover - they had a bad attitude to my question on making sinkers at home."

QUOTE 2: "Australia is relaxed and comfortable about the use of lead while other countries legislate. The key performance indicator for lead awareness is lead bans" says LEAD Group Committee member Roger Kilburn. In August 2001, a number of recalls of leaded consumer products have taken place [if only they were bans!] and one of them was actually in Australia!
