Administrative history

The AC/71 chronological series contains the documents of the Working Party on the Formation of a Defence Production Committee(1). The Working Party was set up by the Council at its 3 March 1954 meeting, to consider the Belgian proposal for a standing committee advising on essential defence production questions(2). Since the 1952 Lisbon Conference this had been under consideration by the Production and Logistics Division. The Working Party comprised experts from Delegations, International Staff members and a Standing Group Liaison Office representative, chaired by the Assistant Secretary General for Production and Logistics, who met to draft terms of reference for the new committee and recommend that it be set up.The Working Party operated from 3 March to 21 April 1954, then was disbanded after the formation of the Defence Production Committee on 20 April 1954(3).
