§ Sir R. Acland
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer arising from the decision of the Sixth Session of the United Nations Economic Employment and Development Commission, in June last, what steps have since been taken to make a thorough investigation into the question whether an existing United Nations organisation could handle the task of the development of under-developed countries; what British personnel has been engaged on the 261W investigations; whether any reports have been received; and, if not, when any reports are expected.
§ Mr. Ernest Davies
I have been asked to reply. The United Nations Economic Employment and Development Commission is a subordinate organ of the United Nations Economic and Social Council and as such has no power to take decisions. Its recommendations are at present being considered by the Economic and Social Council. The remainder of the Question does not therefore arise.
