§ 63. Mr. Brockway
asked the Lord Privy Seal what arrangements have been made for the appointment of a Secretary-General to the United Nations.
§ Mr. P. Thomas
U Thant was elected unanimously by the General Assembly on 3rd November, on the unanimous recommendation of the Security Council, to act as Secretary-General until 10th April, 1963. He will enjoy the full powers of the Secretary-General in accordance with the Charter. This is a satisfactory and encouraging development, and I am sure that I can speak for the whole House in offering our congratulations and best wishes to U Thant.
