The AC/52(SP) chronological series contains the records of the Working Group on the Greek Delegation's Proposal.
This working group was established in May 1958 further to a proposal from Greece aimed at creating a study committee on Soviet propaganda. It met for the first time on 22 May 1958. At the four meetings of the Group, it became abundantly clear that NATO felt it was ill-informed of the use to which each member country was putting the information sent to them. The Group proposed sending a questionnaire on the subject to each member country.
The replies received were discussed at the fifth conference of the Heads of National Services in October 1958 (see the Working Group's final report, circulated under reference AC/52 D(58)52 on 31 October 1958).
