The Honourable Brian Tobin, Premier
8th Floor, East Block
Confederation Building
St John's, Newfoundland, A1B 4J6


                           Subject: Reform of the General Part of the Criminal Code

           I have written to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Newfoundland and Labrador.  I have not received a reply to my letters of 14 August and 15 October 1998 (copy attached).

           I am somewhat concerned by the silence of your minister.  Are you aware of any problems with his correspondence unit?  Would you be so kind as to ask your minister if he is aware of the existence of my letters.  Thank you.
