                          Subject: Reform of the General Part of the Criminal Code

               I had written you a letter dated 14 August 1998 on the criminal law policy of Newfoundland and Labrador concerning the reform of the General Part of the Criminal Code (copy attached).    Can I expect a reply in the near future on this important issue for the citizens of your province and those of the rest of Canada?  Thank you.
