HC Deb 08 November 1961 vol 648 c55W
60. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Lord Privy Seal what proposals Her Majesty's Government have made for economies in the United Nations, in view of the fact that it is nearly bankrupt.

Mr. P. Thomas

On 11th October, the United Kingdom delegate on the Fifth Committee of the General Assembly advocated that the United Nations pursue a policy of austerity and retrenchment and suggested several fields in which economies could be made; a summary of his speech is given in United Nations document A/C.5/SR852, which is available in the Library of the House.
