Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The fuel quality specifications would have been set in the request for proposal and there would be a minimum standard that would be required to be met by any supplier. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Mr. Speaker, it is my understanding that the fuel that was purchased was of a lower standard, a cheaper fuel. In reference to this contract as relates to the Iqaluit location, have arrangements been made to deliver this fuel from the waterside to the actual tanks? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I am not familiar with that level of detail in the operations of the Corporation. I would say that if the Corporation has a deal to purchase the fuel, that will cover it. I would expect that it would be in the best interests of the residents of Iqaluit to make sure that they could get the fuel that has been contracted for so that power delivery could continue. I am sure if there is some concern about that, it will be dealt with. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

(Translation) Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to direct my question to the Minister of Health and Social Services. Mr. Speaker, for quite a long time now we have discussed this subject in the Baffin region. The mayors have expressed this issue in regards to the Baffin Regional Hospital. In the last meeting, there were going to be documents on the planning process for the new hospital to be built. (Translation ends) This one is directed to the Minister responsible for Health. Could the Minister of Health and Social Services update this House on the status of design money for the Baffin Regional

Hospital? Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. It is my understanding that, first of all, we have approved the overall envelope for the project. There is an architectural firm that has been selected for the preliminary design phase. I do not know the specifics of the actual dollars and where the contracts lay. I know there is some issue right now in the fact that April 1st is just around the corner, nine days away, and in respect of ongoing financial commitments and the new Nunavut government, Cabinet will deal with this as one of their first priorities. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

(Translation) Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I have read in the newspaper that it was stated that in regards to the funding. I have no idea as to where the funding is at this time, even though these two boards have to set up a budget for this hospital. I want to know exactly what the status is for the funding arrangements for the hospital. Thank you. (Translation ends)

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I guess in my haste in answering that earlier question, it was one of these transition issues between one government and another that I am unfortunately caught in. I think, Mr. Speaker, to answer the honourable Member, I know there is a specific concern right now, I understand, because of the fact that up until March 31st, the Office of the Interim Commissioner has some signing authority for contracts that are going to extend into April 1st of 1999. That might be one of the particular hiccups in this scenario that the honourable Member mentioned and I will make a commitment that I will try to check into that later this afternoon or tomorrow and try to resolve if there are any issues. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. This is just a comment. I will comment and then ask some questions.

--Laughter

(Translation) Mr. Speaker, there is more population in that region, that is why they think that they would require a hospital in that region. How have the funding arrangements been set and how is it going to be presented to the area? I do not know where it went and I have no idea as to how the funding arrangements have been set up. Thank you. (Translation ends)
