Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to ask the Premier a question. Last week, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Koe asked when the handbook for official languages implementation would be ready. We are now six months past the time when the Minister originally said the document would be ready. In developing the handbook, it is critical that there be consultation with aboriginal groups. These groups represent the people directly affected by the process and procedures which will be established in the handbook. Can the Premier describe how aboriginal groups and other language interest groups were consulted during the development of the handbook? Thank you.

Mr. Speaker, aboriginal groups and other language interest groups had a general discussion this winter on the handbook and it is anticipated that the detailed discussions on the document will begin almost immediately. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Supplementary, in the Premier's answer she said there had been general discussions with aboriginal groups. What sort of general discussions? Were they discussing how the handbook was going to be developed? What was the discussion about?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. In April, the Premier indicated that the draft handbook had to be reviewed due to a reduction in funding. Does the Premier have a date for when this very important guiding document will be ready? Thank you.
