HC Deb 03 August 1971 vol 822 c292W
Mr. Judd

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will make a statement on the British Government's policy towards recent statements by the Secretary General of the United Nations concerning proposals for setting up an International Disaster Relief Co-ordination Office.

Mr. Kershaw

We warmly welcome recent references by the Secretary General to the need for a permanent disaster relief office within the United Nations, and co-sponsored a resolution giving effect to this proposal which was adopted at the recent meeting of the Economic and Social Council.
