Statements in the House

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters February 4th, 1998

That has also been done, for listening devices and that too. Yes.

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters February 4th, 1998

Mr. Chairman, the security system in our building is checked out twice a year by the RCMP surveillance unit.

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters February 4th, 1998

Yes. The Member is again correct.

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters February 4th, 1998

Thank you, Mr. Chairman. We did not realize because of the unique situation of Mr. Evaloarjuk that he required those professional services. I am glad Mr. Evaloarjuk has brought it to our attention. We will look at what we can do to assist. If you are using most of your constituency money for interpreter services, then I agree we should be providing some of that service ourselves to the Member. We will look at it.

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters February 4th, 1998

Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Good evening. I have with me the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly, Mr. Hamilton. Thank you.

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters February 3rd, 1998

Thank you, Madam Chairperson. The constitutional process is still ongoing right now. We cannot make any determinations on how many Members we will have. We might have two chambers. Also, under the NWT Act we still can have up to 25 Members but that still has to be determined. We do not know what the numbers are going to be yet and we are not going to know until maybe 1999. That is the best answer we can provide right now.

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters February 3rd, 1998

Madam Chairperson, in my opening statement I mentioned that we deliberately did all our contracts and our statutory appointments to end on March 31, 1999. The translation services provided to this Assembly is done by private contracts. Again, we will not put ourselves in the position of influencing what Nunavut will be provided. If there is a market there, then the people who are providing who service will have the opportunity to provide that service.

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters February 3rd, 1998

Yes, Madam Chairperson, all the material that will be in the library is being duplicated and it is in storage here in Yellowknife.

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters February 3rd, 1998

Yes, Madam Chairperson, I do not know what it is by way of process but it is under capital. We are under O and M so I am wondering if the Member might want to wait until we get to that.
