QUESTION: Reducing lead exposure in Australia - 2nd email,
13 Mar 2003, Paris France
I'm looking for the following publication :
Berry, M., Garrard, J., Greene, D., Crooks, M. L., Hallebone, E., Braaf, R., and Jacinda, F. (1994). Reducing lead exposure in Australia. Commonwealth of Australia, Australia. Could you provide us with it ?
Thank you very much for your help
ANSWER: 13 Mar 2003
The two volumes together are titled "Reducing Lead Exposure in Australia" and Volume 1 has the subtitle: "An Assessment Of Impacts - Report"; and Volume 2 has the subtitle: "Risk Assessment And Analysis Of Economic And Environmental Impacts - Technical Appendices". It was released exactly 9 years ago today on 11th March 1994. It is an excellent publication and if the strategy recommended in it had been followed, we may well have eliminated lead poisoning in the home in Australia by now - but we haven't because the strategy was basically ignored.
I phoned the main author Deni Greene and although she's not certain she could find a complete copy to email to you, she kindly offered to post you one of her spare copies (both Volume 1 and Volume 2) to you at her cost.
further to my previous email (below), I have received a phonecall from
AusInfo to answer the query I left in a message on the weekend. AusInfo
have changed their web address and can be found on the website of the Department
of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy. The online bookshop on that website unfortunately does not
list all their titles - only the best sellers. AusInfo has about 100
copies of "Reducing lead exposure in Australia" but they can
only sell you a copy of Volume 1, as Volume 2 is "obsolete"
[out-of-print]. It costs approximately Aus$27 plus postage overseas. You
can order it by Email on teleinfo[at]noie.gov.au or Fax mail sales on +61
2 6293 8333. The phone number is +61 2 6293 8301.
