HC Deb 22 May 1947 vol 437 c285W
84. Colonel Clarke

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what plans are in being for the liquidation of the European Coal Organisation; and when this is likely to take place.

Mr. Mayhew

At the first session of the Economic Commission for Europe held at the beginning of May a resolution was unanimously adopted recommending that the activities of the European Coal Organisation should be terminated not later than the end of 1947, and that, simultaneously with its termination, the functions of the organisation should be transferred to the Economic Commission for Europe.
