Thank you, Madam Speaker. I can't say to the honourable Member that there is a cataloguing system, but I can tell you that there is information on the documents that have been provided to the museum. There is a listing. I would have to check to find out if all the documents have been catalogued. There is a big difference between cataloguing and listing the information. Cataloguing includes putting them in order, in terms of dates and all those kinds of things. I can't confirm that is the case. I'll check into the matter and provide the information to the honourable Member.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. There are people in the public who are very interested in the projects and would like to have access to these tapes. I would like to ask the Minister how can members of the public access these tapes and the transcripts? Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. I guess one of the first ways is to communicate their request to the department or to me. That would be the first way of dealing with it. I will provide information to the honourable Member in detail about what the communities might do about applying for the information for use in the communities.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. Madam Speaker, I have a question I would like to direct to the Minister responsible for the Department of Justice. I would like to ask the Minister what policies does his department have regarding the awarding of sole source contracts?

Thank you, Madam Speaker. It is the same as for all other departments. Sole source contracts are awarded where the nature of the requirement by government is considered to be of an urgent nature or where we see only one party that could possibly meet the demands we have, where there is only one party who is available and capable of performing the contract. Those are the two main requirements, that it is urgent and where we see only one party who can fulfil the responsibilities. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. Would the Minister be able to tell this House whether his department has any policies regarding the awarding of contracts to former employees of the department?

Madam Speaker, I cannot answer that question. I'm not aware at this time if employees are disqualified from contracts with the government as a result of leaving the employment of this government. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. Can the Minister tell me whether his department, when it awards sole source contracts on an urgent basis -- or whatever basis that meets the criteria -- will purchase and provide equipment to the contractor to provide that function?
