(Translation) Thank you, Madam Speaker. I have a written question for the Minister of Renewable Resources.

The Department of Renewable Resources provide UHF radios to be used by hunters in the communities. These radios are very useful.

Has the Department of Renewable Resources considered to provide in the future an equipment called GPS? It would be very useful for use by search and rescue services in communities.

Madam Speaker, I rise on a point of order under rule 40, which deals with returns to written questions. Madam Speaker, I tabled Written Question 2-12(6) on October 6th to the Minister of Health and Social Services and the NWT Housing Corporation concerning elders' residences operated by the GNWT. I note that, according to rule 40(4), the government has 21 days to file a return to my question.

I also note, Madam Speaker, that the same rule provides for the government to provide a provisional return if they're not in a position to answer my written question within the 21 days. Madam Speaker, we have now passed the item return to written questions and my reply was not filed, as required by the rules, within 21 days. Therefore, I raise this point of order, as the rules have not been observed and I ask that you make a ruling accordingly, Madam Speaker. Thank you.

Thank you. In accordance with our rules, the government does have 21 days and, if the 21 days have lapsed, the government should give an interim reply if the reply is not granted. Therefore, Mr. Ng, you do have a point of order. I will have to ask the Minister of Health and Social Services and the Minister of Housing to reply, in accordance with our rules and make the return to the written question as soon as possible. Thank you.

Item 9, replies to opening address. Item 10, petitions. Item 11, reports of standing and special committees. The honourable Member for Inuvik, Mr. Koe.
