Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the Minister for that plain English response. My understanding of what the Minister said to us, if I can try to interpret it, is that you have to keep this process going and that you cannot really ever finalize it, you cannot come to the point where you make decisions; in the meantime, the department of Health officials will take care of business. I am concerned as a member of the Social Programs Committee and as MLA, of course, that in fact, we have heard year after year from our officials about all of these strategies. There are child welfare issues that are unresolved for instance.

There has to be a point when there are documents on the table that we can all look at so that we know that we are moving ahead in a planned way. Can the Minister indicate if there is a plan to bring some finality to these strategies at least on an interim basis so that, in fact, recommendations are on the table and we can look at them and move ahead as a department, as a government and as the Northwest Territories? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, there is finality and terms of reference of work plans and timelines for all of these strategies and quite frankly I do not have the specifics of each one with me, but I would be more that willing to provide that to the honourable Member. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Could the Minister indicate when he would be able to do this? Is it before Friday, after Friday, I know the time is tight, but this is an important issue and I know he is going to have other responsibilities soon, but the problems are going to remain behind for us. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I have a very short question to the Premier. Tomorrow there will be a motion in this Legislative Assembly on the appeal of the Supreme Court decision on the Electoral Boundaries, Motion 5-13(7). Will the Premier allow the Western MLAs that are Ministers in his Cabinet a free vote or will Cabinet be abstaining from that motion? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, we have had a very serious discussion about it in Cabinet and it is the position of the Cabinet now that we will abstain from that motion tomorrow. Thank you.

Jane Groenewegen Hay River

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, yesterday the Minister of Education, Culture and Employment provided me with a return to an oral question indicating that recently some seniors in Hay River were inadvertently included in a T5-007 mail out that was issued to social assistance recipients. This was, in fact, for fuel subsidies that they had received. My question for the Minister is, was it only seniors in Hay River who received these inadvertent T5-007s? Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, my understanding is that about 15 seniors in total were affected and yes, I believe that they were all from the Hay River region. Thank you.
