Mr. Speaker, I intend to do exactly that. This is the third time the hon. member has got up in the last seven or eight days on this particular question.
I pointed out to him on the first occasion that when he looks at the question, and he knows this perfectly well because he wrote it, he has asked for a list that must be quite substantial.
The question asked what contracts for services, supplies and leasing have been awarded by Public Works and Government Services since October 25, 1993 in all federal constituencies in Quebec and what federal government properties are located in those same constituencies? It will be an extremely substantial list.
In providing an answer to the hon. member, the government wants to make sure it is accurate. I have no doubt great pains are being taken to ensure a full, accurate response will be given to the member.
The hon. member has asked for an answer within 45 days. It is impossible to prepare such a lengthy reply in that time and he knows that. We are doing our best to get the answer. I assure him I am working on getting an answer for his question. I will continue to work to get an answer for his question. I hope to be in a position to table that answer soon.
In the meantime, I ask that all questions be allowed to stand.
