HC Deb 31 July 1974 vol 878 c203W
Mr. Dykes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs which organisations have observer status at the United Nations and whether he will propose that the European Community should apply for such status.

Mr. Hattersley

The secretaries-general of the following intergovernmental organisations have received standing invitations to attend sessions of the United Nations General Assembly as observers and maintain permanent offices at United Nations Headquarters: the League of Arab States and the Organisation of African Unity. The European Community is requesting the inscription of an item on the agenda of the General Assembly with a view to securing similar status.
