    Answer to Written Question No. 96 – Construction Division

      This question requires a significant amount of effort by the agency to produce an answer that would provide the detail requested.

      All agencies are involved in a lot of work in preparing for Estimates Committee hearings and in doing so will be collating information similar to that which has been requested.

      In order to avoid unnecessary pressure and duplication by the public servants who have to provide this information, I will be prepared to answer these questions in further detail at Estimates Committee.
