Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I have a question for the Minister of DPW. Mr. Speaker, I fully recognize that the tender awards for the academic building were done prior to the new Minister of DPW being appointed. Having said that, Mr. Speaker, I have full confidence in the new Minister to address the issue of improper or inconsistent awarding of tenders.

Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask the Minister, will the Minister review the situation and advise this House why DPW and Clark-Bowler confirmed and approved the awarding of the electrical and interior finishing contract tender award?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I listened with attention to Mr. Dent's Member's statement yesterday, and the department is formulating a report to me in that regard. If Members in the House can be a little patient, I'll add on the other issues that the honourable Member, Jeannie Marie-Jewell, has raised today and bring back a report covering the whole. I will do that. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question is for the Minister of Public Works and Services and it has to do with my Member's statement yesterday and the issues that the Member for Thebacha has also talked about. I recognize that the Minister just said the department is preparing a response for him on this issue. My question is, has the Minister directed that the letter of intent on the contract for interior finishing be rescinded until such time as he has a chance to review the situation and perhaps insist that the award be made to a northern company?

Mr. Speaker, that was my first question, and unfortunately, the process had gone too far for me to be able to stop the contract or review the contract. I did ask that yesterday and unfortunately, it had gone too far, Mr. Speaker, so I'm unable to stop the contract. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. To the Minister of Education, Culture and Employment. Mr. Speaker, yesterday the Minister stated in response to some questions I asked about the student residence formula, that in one particular student residence there are now 19 staff members and 15 students. I would like to ask the Minister which particular residence the Minister is referring to. Thank you.

Mr. Speaker, with regard to that, that was a different matter and I apologize for the information. Here is the correct information. In Ukiivik Hall, there are 27 students, 11.5 staff members, the cost is $1.644 million. Grollier Hall has 53 students with 23 staff, and the staff are on contract. The contract is worth $1.645 million. Kivalliq Hall, 22 students, 11 staff, $944,000. That's the correct information.

I'm told, at present, there are nine staff members in Ukiivik Residence today, not 11.5. I would like to ask the Minister, which residence was he talking about authoritatively yesterday that has 19 staff members and 15 students, if it wasn't the residences in Iqaluit, Rankin Inlet and Inuvik? Which residence was he referring to? Thank you.
