  QUESTION: Australian government expenditure on lead poisoning prevention education, 29 Jan 2003, New Jersey USA

Please visit my website on the Story Board Exhibit on Lead poisoning Prevention. Possibly it would have some application in your country. Go to  Let me know what you think.

ANSWER: 23 May 2003

Dear Gary,

thanks for letting us know about your Story Board Exhibit on Lead Poisoning Prevention. If all Australian governments (including all the states) have only spent US$10,000 on lead poisoning prevention education funding (that's all we get to run the Lead Advisory Service Australia per annum), I really don't like your chances of getting any government funding for your Story Board Exhibit - no matter how good it is. Sorry to be delivering such a negative message. Because it is good, I would encourage you to write a proposal to each state Premier (as every state leaves the lead issue in the hands of one or another Minister - it could be Health, Housing, Environment, Industrial Relations, Police - it varies) so the best point of approach is via the Premier/Chief Minister/Prime Minister (see attached). You can tell them that the Lead Advisory Service Australia is happy to work with you to Australianise the messages.

Good luck
Elizabeth O'Brien
