The final measure in the legal and legislative process for the privatization of the Saint Lucia Banana Growers Association Dissolution bill will be read a second time and placed before The House for passage. The bill makes provision for the dissolution of the SLBGA; the transfer of all assets and liabilities of the SLBGA to the Saint Lucia Banana Corporation and also references to the association in any contract, deed or other document to be construed as references to the Corporation. The bill will in effect place the St. Lucia Banana Corporation in the shoes of the SLBGA, legally and otherwise and the measure is intended to take effect from October 1, 1998.

The Micro and Small-Scale Business Enterprise Bill - 1998 is also down for discussion as well as The Land Development Interim Control Amendment Bill - 1998, which will be introduced.
