Administrative history

The AC/7 chronological series contains the records of the Working Group on Shipping Needs in Times of War. The Working Group was created by the Council Deputies during their meeting on 5 July 1951 to clarify the issue of shipping requirements in times of war, following a cable from the Standing Group on the topic (AC/7-N/1). The meeting of the working group was attended by a representative of each national delegation, an officer of the Standing Group, the Chairman of the Planning Board for Ocean Shipping (PBOS), a representative from SHAPE and a member of the Financial and Economic Board. The Working Group held its first and only meeting on 19 July 1951. They discussed the finer points of war time shipping, particularly the distinction between civil and military needs.
