The Chairman said that, with regard to the reviews of national implementing legislation that had been initiated at the Council's meetings since April 2001, six reviews still remained on the Council's agenda. These reviews concerned Cuba; Fiji; Grenada; Saint Kitts and Nevis; Saint Vincent and the Grenadines; and Suriname. 24. Furthermore, a number of questions had been raised with regard to the implementing legislation of certain other Members whose reviews had already been deleted from the Council's agenda on the understanding that any delegation should feel free to revert to any matter stemming from the review at any time. These Members were Dominica, Gabon, Ghana and Guyana. 25. He urged delegations concerned to provide outstanding material as soon as possible, so as to allow the Council to complete the follow-up to these reviews.
