Thank you, Mr. Chairman. The Standing Committee on Government Operations reviewed Bill 10, Forgiveness of Debts Act, 1998-99, at its meeting on March 23, 1999. The committee would like to thank the Minister of Finance and his officials for presenting the bill. This bill would authorize the government to forgive approximately $252,000 in debts. The committee noted that this is relatively consistent within recent years. In the majority of cases, the debts have been discharged by the courts following bankruptcy proceedings. Mr. Chairman, committee Members may have additional comments or questions on this bill during the review in committee of the whole. This concludes the report of the Standing Committee on Government Operations on Bill 10, Forgiveness of Debts Act, 1998-99. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
