Administrative history

The AC/26 chronological series contains the records of the Working Group on the Ministerial Meeting of the Council. The Working Group was created by the North Atlantic Council on 24 July 1952 to examine arguments for and against holding a Ministerial meeting that coming Autumn and to then propose a draft agenda should that meeting take place (C-R(52)17 Item II).The meetings of the Working Group were chaired by Mr Richard D Coleridge (later Lord Coleridge), Executive Secretary, and were attended by a representative of each national delegation, members of the International Staff from a relevant division, such as Political Affairs or Economics and Finance, and occasionally a Standing Group Liaison Officer. The Working Group held its first meeting on 5 August 1952, and met 24 more times over the succeeding four years. The group generally conducted two to three meetings each year during the Spring and Fall, in advance of the Ministerial meetings of the Council. During these meetings the Working Group discussed what should be included on the agenda of the upcoming Ministerial meeting, and whether or not a public session should be held. The last meeting of the Working Group was held on 11 April 1956.
