Thank you Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, maybe if I rephrase my question the Minister will understand. In Nunavut we will be paying seven percent after division of the NWT Power Corporation. On top of that we will be paying to the headquarters, which is in the west in Hay River. How long will this be? I understand we have one year to decide if the headquarters will be moved to Nunavut. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The Member has suggested there would be a seven percent increase in cost during the transition agreement and that is not correct. Through the transition agreement, there will be no increase in costs because the corporation is continuing to run as it is. Until another headquarters is established, there is no increase. That seven or 10 percent increase was projected as a result of creating a new headquarters in Nunavut. Until that headquarters is created there is nothing that drives up the costs in Nunavut. There is no cost increase proposed during the two-year life of this transition agreement, Mr. Speaker.

Question 39-13(7): GNWT Cost-plus Leases
Item 6: Oral Questions

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, my question is to the Minister of Public Works in regards to the government leasing policy that is in place presently, and also the benefit that this government gets from leases that we presently have. My concern, Mr. Speaker, the ones that are basically are classified as leases which are considered cost-plus, which means that they are over and above the prime rate that this government pays. I would like the Minister, if possible, to provide a list of all leases which are cost-plus and the possibility of those leases being posted publicly.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, the department can look at what is available. I am not familiar with this area of the different leases and the cost-plus portion of them. I will get back to my department and receive some information on that and then forward the information on to the Member to see if we can clarify what the specific concern is. Thank you

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, we hear a lot of statements made in this House about how the government should save money, especially in areas of negotiated contracts. I think if we are going to look at all aspects of savings to this government, I also feel it is time we assessed the value of leases this government has in the Northwest Territories, and the cost to this government of these leases, which are classified as a cost-plus, which is over and above the prime rate that this government will pay for leases in the communities and in the larger centres. I would like to ask again, can the Minister provide such a list and identify who we are leasing this space from and exactly what the amounts of those leases are?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. As I said earlier, I will get back to my department to try and get some specific information. There are some areas we are going to have to look into as to confidentiality of some agreements, or what is put out there. What can be brought together and brought forward. I will look at doing that and providing the information to the Member. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The other half of my question was the possibility of having this information made public, put in the newspaper or wherever else, so the public knows how this government is spending its money. Thank you

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. As the Member stated earlier, in an earlier part of his question was, is the government looking at trying to save money and looking at the way it does business. We can try and do something in the area providing information to the Member if there are some specific cases he would like to address, but in the case of putting out adds in the papers, that would just drive up the cost of this government to provide information to everybody. If there are some specific cases, we can look at doing something and providing that information to the Member or to this House if that is the case. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
