The Hon. Dr B. P. V. PEZZUTTI: My question without notice is to the Minister for Juvenile Justice, Minister Assisting the Premier on Youth, and Minister Assisting the Minister for the Environment. Does aerosol created as a result of rushing stormwater and sewage combining when they enter the northside storage tunnel contain the organisms Clostridium perfringens, faecal coliforms, giardia, cryptosporidium, entero viruses, adeno viruses and reo viruses?

The Hon. CARMEL TEBBUTT: I thank the Hon. Dr B. P. V. Pezzutti for his good question, but it is not one that I am able to respond to immediately. I undertake to obtain a response from the Minister for the Environment as soon as possible.
