C.ii Reviews in 2000 and 2001
15. The Chairperson said that this item had been taken up in informal consultations at which, insofar as the reviews in 2000 were concerned, the order of Members to be reviewed at each of the two meetings had been determined by drawing lots. The result was that, at the meeting scheduled for the week of 26-30 June, the legislation of Trinidad and Tobago would be reviewed first and, at the meeting scheduled for the week of 27 November to 1 December, the legislation of St. Lucia would be taken up first. The other Members, whose legislation was to be reviewed at these meetings, would be taken up in alphabetical order after Trinidad and Tobago and St. Lucia, respectively. 16. Turning to the reviews in 2001, he said that it had been suggested that these be conducted at three meetings: the first in February/March, the second in June/July and the third in November. He had been consulting with the 42 Members concerned on the question as to at which of these meetings their respective legislation might be reviewed. Some progress had been made in this regard, although he was not yet in a position to put forward a complete timetable for the reviews in 2001 for the Council's consideration. Therefore, he proposed that the Chair continue conducting the necessary consultations with a view to proposing a complete programme by the time of the Council's next meeting.
