Mr. Speaker, with respect to P-30 which requests certain memorandums of understanding, there are no formal memorandums of understanding between Environment Canada and U.S. Customs or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency relating to intelligence and surveillance capacity concerning ozone-depleting substances.

I therefore ask the hon. member to withdraw his motion.

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order relating to questions Q-78 and Q-79.

These questions have been on the Order Paper for over seven months. On April 24 and June 10 I rose on points of order regarding the delay.

I am asking for a third time. Could the parliamentary secretary inform me as to when I can expect a response? I hope it will not be the same response I have had on previous points of order where he says they will come. I want to know when I will have an answer.

As you know, the government's record in responding to questions is extremely good at the moment. I regret to say that I do not have the answers to the member's questions as yet.
