Dear Mr. Lareau:

Thank you for your letter dated 21 January 1999 and a copy of the "Chronology - Towards a Modern General Part of a New Canadian Criminal Code".

We wish to assure you that we will consider this information as part of our audit planning process.  However, we do not plan at this time to conduct a review of development of the Criminal Code in the short or medium term.

Thank you for your interest in our Office.

Yours sincerely,

Alan Gilmore
