Mr. Dodds-Parker

Mr. Menon's proposal was not put to the vote in the Disarmament Commission but, like all the other proposals and resolutions presented to the Commission, it has by the Resolution adopted at the Disarmament Commission on 16th July been referred to the Sub-Committee for further study.
