Mahsi, Mr. Speaker. I have a question for the Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources. Currently, I believe negotiations are continuing on the development of a northern accord for the Northwest Territories. I would like to ask the Minister, what is the current status of these negotiations?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. These are fluid negotiations. It is my understanding, in talking to Mr. Bailey who is leading the discussions on behalf of this government, that everybody is currently still at the table and is working aggressively to go through the draft accord in an effort to see if an arrangement can be made with all the groups so we can meet the June 30th deadline. Thank you.

There have been many comments, made not only in this House but by various people who are presently negotiating, about some of the issues that are impeding progress. Can the Minister outline to us some of the issues that are impeding progress at this time?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The major issue that appeared -- or maybe currently is; why knows? As I said, these negotiations are under way, so I don't want to make any comments that would jeopardize a satisfactory arrangement --to be a bit of a stumbling block in the discussions was the definition of the inherent right to self-government, et cetera. Indicated to the group who were negotiating that this responsibility lay with Mr. Kakfwi and Mr. Kakfwi, I believe, has dealt with that -- at least to the satisfaction of this government -- in an orderly and expeditious way.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. On June 2nd and 5th of this year, Minister Kakfwi did write letters to the aboriginal leaders about this government's position on inherent right to self-government. These letters were subsequently circulated to Members of this Assembly. What is this government's position in the current negotiations on the inherent right to self-government with respect to the collection of revenues from oil, gas and minerals within the respective claimant areas?

It seems to me that that question should perhaps be addressed to Mr. Kakfwi. Otherwise, I would have to take it as notice, Mr. Speaker.

Mahsi, Mr. Speaker. I have a question for the Minister of Intergovernmental and Aboriginal Affairs. On June 2nd and June 5th, he wrote letters to the aboriginal leaders stating this government's position on inherent self-government. Subsequently, copies of these letters were sent or distributed to Members of this Assembly. Have the aboriginal leaders indicated their positions in response to these letters which you sent?
