I am informed by the departments of fisheries and oceans, justice and solicitor general as follows:

(a) The following is a summary of the enforcement resources expended in the Fraser River and Port Alberni in response to protest fisheries aimed at the aboriginal pilot sales for 1995, 1996 and 1997:

Manpower 1995: $11,000 1996: $36,700 1997: $101,700

Equipment 1995: $700 1996: $16,600 1997: $37,000

Other resources 1995: $0 1996: $0 1997: $0

(b) Fraser River:

1995: $274,624 1996: $108,420 1997: $103,888

Port Alberni:

No data was recovered for the years 1995, 1996 and 1997 for the Port Alberni area. This type of data is not readily available as E division of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police did not track this data as a matter of course until 1998.

(c) There were no costs incurred in 1995. The total estimated costs for 1996 and 1997 together is $34,299.66. Unfortunately it is not possible to break this total down into the individual years.

Mr. Speaker, I suggest that Motion P-36, under Standing Order 97(1) be transferred for debate.

The Deputy Speaker

Standing Order 97(1) requires that either the member proposing the motion or any minister propose that the motion be transferred for debate. The parliamentary secretary is not able to make that request.

The question is what is the disposition in respect of this notice of motion for the production of papers. Either we put the question, or we have another submission. Is the Minister of Natural Resources rising on this point?
