ANSWER

Mr President, I thank the member for Launceston for her question, the answer to which includes a table.

It is only a small table so I will not table it.

[2.54 p.m.]

I can put this in writing if you like but for question (3), what is the length of time they have been over-boundary? I would prefer not to be given an average because I believe that category 1 might be a bit different to the others. Would you like me to put that in writing?

Mrs Hiscutt - I would like the member to clarify that in writing. Thank you.
